Shriveled chicken comb

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi. I have a hen that was lathargic (not eating) and had goo coming out of her mouth when she drank. I figured it was sour crop. So I withheld food until morning, made her vomit, feed her yogurt and wet warmed chick feed. I also gave her tetracycline in case of infection. I've let her out now with the others and she does seem better but she still looks like she has a full crop and she doesn't move around as quickly. (She looks fat) I then thought that something maybe stuck in her crop so I gave her lots bread soaked in olive oil and sprinkled with grit. I did this for 3 days now! Still the same. Her poop looks norm, she is roosting but she's not laying. Any ideas?

After she gets sick it takes a few days to start laying. I'm it so sure about why her crop is constantly full tho.

I'm thinking her crop is partially impacted. Which causes frequent sour crop. Will get her some meds from the vet. I don't want to pay for surgery, way too expensive out here
