    I found my 7 months Wyanndott , Wasabi, was sitting in the nesting box a couple days ago . Her comb and wattle were red. She squatted when I touched her. Wasabi will be laying soon, I thought. But she kept staying up in the coop, hovering around the box and didn't go down to eat or drink. Her tail is drooping . I brought her in , after she ate a little bit, I checked for an egg. Her vent was still small. I couldn't get my finger further than 1 inch. She dropped a small poop after that .This morning she is still in the coop . What's happened to her? Is she sick? Your helps would be greatly appreciated 20190410_171625.jpg

    Her crop is soft, a little squishy.

    Has she ate or drank today?
    Read the article I linked for you in the previous post. Check her crop first thing in the morning before she eats/drinks and let us know if it is empty.

    I read the Article. I do not see the similarities, though.

    Hmmm...so the crop is soft, a little squishy - I'm assuming it still has food/water in there, but she has not had anything to eat/drink.
    In the photo her crop looks like it's hanging over to me.

    Can you take her to a vet?

    She ate and drank a little now. Before that, her crop was small. Right now, she is closing her eyes and tucks her head in.
