Sour crop, no improvement

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So my hens sour crop came back.  I thought I got it the first time around but seems to have come back. I had given her monistat and it went away. I have been giving her monistat all this week but no improvement really. I then switched to a one day cream of a different type of anti fungal (this was about 10 hours ago). If this doesnt work I think I may need to try a more natural method. I looked for something on the butter milk treatment but I couldnt find it. Does anyone have a tried and true method of getting rid of this annoying illness?

What is the difference between a sour crop and an impacted crop? How can you tell the difference?

Has anyone tried tea tree oil?

I don't think tea tree oil is good for chickens. Have you used Apple cider vinegar? I would try to empty out the crop, give some apple cidar vinagar, then feed her only vitamin water for a day if she is not skinny. Then give some more apple cider vinegar, then I would purchase baby parrot hand feeding formula and give her that until her crop starts working properly again.

Yeah I had seen somewhere that you can give that to them, but I just wasnt sure. She is inside right now with just some yogurt. I regurgitated her last night before I brought her in and it hasnt gone back up, but it hasnt gone back down all the way.

I would try the ACV, it's cheap and worth a shot. It changes the PH in the crop, so it may help....

I put some in her water. I ran out though! So tomorrow I will have to go pick some more up. Her crop isnt to ridiculous today, she just hates being penned up. Hopefully tomorrow will show some improvement.
