    Great article, @azygous, thanks! I have bookmarked it/saved to my favorites so I can access it again quickly if/when I ever need it. Thanks so much to you and the other BYC experts who are so willing to share your knowledge, experience and expertise with newbies, rank beginners, and folks like me, who have had chickens for years but have been bumbling our way around in a fog of ignorance because we just didn't know what we didn't know! Our chickens thank you!

    great and very helpful article.
    That yeast treatment you suggested, they have an oral gel for it aswell, is that okay too ?

    A good description and treatment options for the two main crop issues sour crop and impacted crop. Also has good treatment options and a follow up with pendulous crop treatment if your hen repeatedly has these issues.

    I've read articles for weeks and nothing simplified this crop issue I'm having with my hen until now!! Thank you!
    Shes quarentined until tommorow and I'll know soon if she needs a bra or just yeast treatment.
