Several natural home remedies online to try, that is for sure. I'd start going through them till you find one that works for her. I'm not sure how to tell if they aspirate or not, so I never chanced it myself. I think they get sick like a pneumonia or something if they do, or something like that. so I never did that. Good luck! It is definitely curable.
To keep from getting it in my flock again I check their crops every night and morning. If I feel an impaction (hard at night, hard in the morning or not completely gone) then I massage it for a few seconds to get things moving through again, that way it doesn't sit in there and get sour. I can check them everyday as I only have 5. this would be hard with many chickens. Also, I get up at 4 so they are still on the roost when I get out there at 4:30 or so.
I just brought her yogurt with dog probiotic mixed in it and she is eating it, happier looking already!
I have her in the greenhouse so the others can't eat her yogurt!
