Sour Crop CURED with Monistat - Page 2

post #11 of 259
So I am trying the 7 day cream to see how that goes. She takes liquids better than solids so I will report back with how it goes.

How courageous of you!   I'm going to write this down.  I had a hen who had a huge water-balloon crop and she didn't make it.  I think I'll try this the next time I see one of the girls with a problem.  Good for you for being brave!  I have a friend who said "How do you know so much about chickens?"  And its because of forums like this who share and teach.  Its great!

P.S.  Did you just put the 1/3 piece of suppository down her throat or did you mix it in with the tube feeding?

I put the piece down her throat.  When she fights me two much I break the piece in half and put them in one at a time.  It's much easier to do with two people, but with my husband's work schedule that's not possible.

I sucked up the cream in a syringe then sucked up some water and shook it a bit. It went down really well. The only problem with this is the dosing. It is a 7 day cream but I am giving her a little bit at a time just to make sure I dont kill her.

 

Tonight I gave her a little bit of monistat, then regurgitated her a bit later. I then gave her a bit more monistat to hopefully jump start the process a bit.

 

She does not like it when I make her throw up and neither do I. I feel so bad when I do it, especially when it gets into her nose and she sneezes a lot. I am just trying to help though!!! She couldnt have been to mad at me though because she fell asleep under my arm :)

I did exactly the same thing.  Open her beak and stuff the piece in, follow with a syringe of water or yogurt.  If she fought too much, we'd cut the piece in half or quarters and feed a little at a time.  Wrapping her in a towel helped, but having my hubby hold her beak open helped even more.

The cream works!!!!!!

 

OMG I almost just started crying because her crop wasn't a giant boob anymore!!!

 

The original poster should win some kind of Backyard Chicken Achievement of the Year Award. This is amazing, and so easy to fix. Now I am trying not to get ahead of myself it has only been a day, but so far so good!

 

Now I have a sinus infection in a different one... what is wrong with my girls!!! Its like they are getting sick just for attention... yikes... never had this problem with my last batch of chickens.

i know this is going to sound so stupid, but it doenst hurt to ingest the Monistat if it's a supository?  I want to keep this one in my 'fix it list' if i know it's safe!  awesome job with your girl!

I looked at all the caged animals in the barn...the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness, and betrayal. And I was angry."God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly, "I have done something...I created you."

If that worked I wonder if just plain yogurt would do the trick. Most anything that you would use these cremes on can also be fixed by just using yogurt with live cultures. If I ever have one on one of my guys I'll have to try that. Great tip though!
