@Wyorp Rock in so sorry I totally missed your last response!! Thank you for checking in- well I thought he was doing better Bc the size of crop went down but then today it's big again and slightly harder. Going to see if I can take him in tomorrow or Saturday to see a dr. Wish there was something else I could do. He seems happy eating pooping etc which is weird.

Thanks for the update.

Hopefully the Dr. will be able to give you a solution. Hope he gets well soon!

I would love your advice. So my roosters swollen crop came back. I took him to the vet and they weren't sure. Thought maybe he was eating the sand in the run Bc it felt like sand. They tested his poop for bacteria and all was fine. She now wants to treat him with antibiotics and anti fungal ( nystatin) hoping one of them works but doesn't know the problem. I'd rather just try one. She said either this will work or there is something in his crop or he maybe was born with a descended crop in which case he won't live long. I'm so confused what to do .... I didn't feel like I made much progress by taking him in...

If he has a distended crop, you can use a crop bra. It applies pressure to push food out of the exit instead of allowing it to collect in the droopy part of the crop.

You can buy them from this site:

Or some people make their own, which isn't all to hard to do.
