Sick rooster - Sour Crop? Worms? Help! - Page 2
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Well last night I tried to "vomit" him and it went ok. I stopped after the first time because I was worried about his breathing but I was curious because it wasn't green like you'd normally see. It was a yellowish color.
*Sigh* back to the drawing board. Does anyone have any ideas what he has. I'm worried that if he doesn't recover soon that he's going to starve. I tried to feed him this morning but he couldn't even keep down the medicated water.

This hen was vomiting yellow also.
Thank you I've tried almost everything I could find to treat his sour crop but nothing is working. He's so weak now I'm worried to try anything else. I'm trying to give him yogurt and grit which he ate a little and the epsom salt water while I'm finishing the treatment but I'm feeling like there's nothing else I can do for him. Does anyone know the best way to make a chicken gain weight?
OK, I'll have to look for them. He's been doing better today. He ate some rice pudding and yogurt with grit in it so that was good. He lost a little weight but that's because he hasn't been eating very well. His craw was slightly emptier today then normal so I'm hoping that the grit is doing the trick but I don't want to get my hopes up.
