Hi this is Dr. Hill. Let me ask couple of questions first to know if she should be seen today. Any tail bobbing? Any evidence of regurgitation around her beak or head? You said the crop has a lump, so very full? Has the size of the crop gone down since you last posted? What are you feeding Zena? Can you post a picture of her? Lets start there.
thank you for the picture. I just wanted to make sure that the crop was not overly distended. We can see crops stasis is birds. this is where the crop becomes over distended due to a lack of motility. Hers is not distended. the crop not emptying properly is usually a sign of inflammation which can be secondary to a yeast overgrowth, infection or toxicity (lead/zinc). The sounds she was making last night may have been associated with discomfort. I always recommend a healthy Vegan diet for birds. Minimal seeds because they are not a good source of nutrition. I would encourage fruits and veggies today and see how behaves through the day. Do you have an avian veterinarian?
love the shower pic!!
If she is not actively regurgitating, is bright and alert and is eating, then that should be fine.
It would be a little unusual to see a foreign body, but not impossible. You are very welcome. If you are satisfied with my answer, then please take time to rate my response.
