What is impacted crop?

Crop impaction in chickens is just as it sounds: this is where food has failed to move from the crop to the stomach and is stuck in the crop. Crop impaction is either caused by an obstruction blocking the passage of food i.e. string/plastic or long grass or it can be the result of normal muscular contractions failing, where food is prevented from passing into the digestive system.
