Impacted crop? 10 day old Silkie chick

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, hoping someone can help me.  I have 8, 10 day old Silkie chicks in a brooder using lucerne  chaff as the litter, medicated starter and water.  One of them has a large crop, it is pliable and if you listen carefully when you gently massage it, it seems to have some air in there too.  I took the food away from them last night and this morning this little one's crop was still full.  Could it be impacted?  if so, is there something I can do for it?  It seems normal in every other way.  Thanks.

ok, thanks.  I thought it was bad, it was just that the chick seems so normal in every other way.
