Is sour crop always fungal? Can it be bacterial? How much Nystatin is safe to give a bantam?

Bantam hen has sour crop.   Have been giving her a little scrambled egg with probiotics and water with acv for 2 days.  

Only seems slightly better.   I think I can get hold of some Nystatin...should I give her that?   She is more stressed being isolated from the flock, but I don't want to let her eat regular food too soon.  I don't think she has an impaction.  Her crop is just very soft and mushy.  Any advice appreciated!!!

Nystatin is a pretty safe drug.  Usually you give adult humans 15 drops at a time.

 

Have you seen this material on sour crop?
