Sour crop or not!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My chicken has been sick past 4-5 days not laying or roosting not eating much. Stays a lot in coop corner. When she does come outside to eat she is very slow walking and closes her eyes a lot. Ive given her a lot of kitchen cupboard remedies. Although she hasn't taken a lot of it. Red wine laxatives Nat yog. Painklers scrambled egg. Iron olive oil garlic. Ect. I don't know what to do. She has been vomiting green when I induce her vomiting but nothing in past day as I stopped the inducing. Her poo is greeny white watery sometimes with grainy bits. Her crop feels ok now I think. She has new feathers still in casing on top of neck but the root is purple blue is this normal? New to chicken keeping but I'm willing to try anything to help her vet said nothing you can do for crop issues! I'veready contimplated cutting it if it gets to that she's such a good little hen what do you think?

Thanks

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I suggest you put   "Crop Issues," in the search box.  I would imagine a lot of items will pop up.  You may be able to diagnose her problem  by reading the symptoms, and then follow through with what is suggested.    Crop issues are very common in chickens.

 

I see you are offline,  there is no way for anyone to communicate with you under those circumstances.   I hope  information will reach you in time, and she can be saved.

There is an excellent article written by @TwoCrows in the Learning Center on crops (how to diagnose and treat issues) that might help you out:

After reading the article if you still have questions, please post on the emergency forum:

Alright :welcome great to have you joining the BYC flock :frow

 

 

 

Try feeding her some scrambled eggs every day for a week or two ..

 

 


This is an item you might want to get if you do not already have one and it is to put liquid items into the crop and yes it is worth it .....

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
