Impacted Crop / Sour Crop in Chickens
If your hen has a very enlarged crop, far bigger than a tennis ball, the chances are that she has a problem. Syringe 10-20ml of castor oil down her throat and massage it. Once the crop has softened turn the hen upside down and hold her by her legs. Squeeze the contents of the crop back out through her mouth. You may have to do this several times until you get to the root of the problem. i.e a ball of grass or piece if string.
Do not leave her upside down too long, as she will need to catch her breath.
