    Gravel Not Emptying From Crop - Normal?

    This morning when doing random crop checks, I noticed my Barred Rock's crop seemed quite full for first thing in the a.m. Upon massaging it to get a better feel, it broke apart into a bunch of pebbly or gravelly feeling bits. I wouldn't say it's full--at least not in the classic impaction...

    Swollen crop from overeating? Or something else?

    Hey guys, our little 6 day old Australorp seems to have developed a large growth on the right side of her chest. It has been noticable for about 12 hours. After researching on here seems it could just be a swollen crop from eating too much, however after looking at diagrams it seems like it's a...

    I talked to a few vets yesterday to see what they do for impacted crops. The Avian vet did the incision to clean the crop out. That w/a 2 day stay was 1000 dollars. Then got a call back from a farm vet who knew chickens very well, experienced and he suggested to flush it out. Another called...
