    Our baby baby Silkie has a really mushy crop today, and is "throwing up" when I pick 'em up. Not sure what to do from here...water currently has electrolytes in it, should I switch to water with red apple cider vinegar?

    Also, a lot of our birds have had explosive poo lately...we're going to put them in a newer, cleaner brooder box, any other ideas?

    I would switch to ACV in the water. Also with hold food on the mushy crop chick for at least 12 hours to see if it will go down. Make sure the chick has water. If you search sour crop you'll see a few remedies for it.
