Sour crop or not?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Yesterday I  noticed that my buff brahma ( 10 months old) looked like her crop was still full in the morning. I picked her up and yes her crop was large and squishy. Someone mentioned that it was sour crop .I googled sour crop and then I looked her over again better . Her chest area is large but not uneven , it seems like the crop is across the whole chest not just one side . While it is soft and kinda squishy there is no foul smell coming from her mouth and the crop does not seem full. She is acting 100% normal , running around drinking and eating the crumbles .

 

I am picking up some oregano oil as suggested to see if that helps .

 

Is it possible that this is just the way she is built ? She has always looked like she had a large chest area compared to my dark brahma.

I am no expert but it sounds like impacted crop to me. I've heard massaging the belly, plenty of water, and a little vegetable oil through a syringe may help.
