Last week Harriet she wasn't eating her scratch.  She's never been one to not eat her treats.  And then she wouldn't eat dried meal worms.  That's when I knew something was up.  She has a really large, squishy crop.  It doesn't smell awful, but it doesn't smell good.  When I picked her up to feel her, I accidentally vomited her.  So then I vomited her some more.  This is what came out.  She hasn't been eating her food.  And she's molting.  I've brought her inside and every time I pick her up she loses feathers.  She's drinking water and I gave her a bit of yogurt, but she's lethargic and has her tail down.  I've been massaging her crop.  Her poop is watery yellow.  She's and older lady.  I found her about 7 years ago and she was of laying age at that time.  Any thoughts on dealing with the crop and the molt at the same time?  I know she needs to eat to grow her feathers so the sickness is really taking it out of her.


Also, its been raining here for over a week.  Everything is wet, muddy, and moldy.  You can see the scratch grains have sprouted since she hasn't eaten them and its been so wet.
