    Will My Hen Survive?? Soft Eggs, Impacted Crop....

    Thanks for all your help😍 I’m going to try to get picture of her feces, soon. Im going to keep giving her pedialyte for electrolytes and olive oil, and stop giving her tums. I’m not going to dose her with penicillin since she seems better. But, if she gets worse tomorrow, I’ll definitely give...

    Will My Hen Survive?? Soft Eggs, Impacted Crop....

    I’ll try to get a picture....It might be a little while though, since I cleaned up the coop a little bit a ago 😅 She’s been eating her crumble feed (not a ton though), along with the tums, pedialyte, and olive oil. I might try giving her some scrambled eggs mixed with her feed though. Thanks...

    Will My Hen Survive?? Soft Eggs, Impacted Crop....

    Thanks for you concern. She has been acting more tired than her usual self (like 85% of her normal self) but today I let her out to free range and she ran, scratched consistently, ate bugs, and a bit of clover.

    Small Impacted Crop: To Perform Surgery or Not?

    I don’t have any penicillin right now, I’ll have to get it tomorrow. So I’m debating whether or not to give her anything from home....Ibuprofen, Tylenol, aspirin, and such are not antibiotics....So I probably shouldn’t give it to her.

    Small Impacted Crop: To Perform Surgery or Not?

    I’ve been giving her calcium since last week. And have been giving her Pedialyte which antibiotics do you recommend? Some people say ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc... but I’m not going to do that! What about penicillin from a farm supply store? the stores are closed right now....until tomorrow...

    Small Impacted Crop: To Perform Surgery or Not?

    That was my fear....I checked her vent inside and out...and I couldn’t feel any left over eggs bits.....I even massaged the outside area of her vent to help with pushing and egg bits out.....But that was my first suspicion: Internal egg yolk infection. I used the Fenbendazole for her slight...
