Hi, pretty sure my seven month old rir has sour crop, she was fine last night then this morning v lethargic and shaking.
I spoke to a vet after my chicken was sick and brown fowl smelling liquid came out! The vet said it sounds like sour crop and wanted me to take her in for her crop to be emptied but I knew that would stress her so I emptied it myself by holding her upside down and massaging it all out. I've done that four times now and each time more came out.
What do I do now? I'm keeping her in the house tonight and have given her a boiled egg mashed with water and just plain water to drink, should I give her her layers pellets ? And am I meant to give her yoghurt ? And apple cider vinegar? Please help I don't know what I'm doing! What do I do to cure her? Does she need medicine? Should I take her to a vet?
Thanks in advance
vinegar will be perfect to give I gave it to my chicken and her crop seems to be much much better i give her a teaspoon of vinegar in her water 3 times a week
