    Hi everyone

    I have one 9 day old chick (japanese) and noticed last night she had a swollen crop. So I took her to the vet first thing in morning (still swollen). She is healthy but swollen. Poop looks good etc. I did give her a dish of chick food yesterday and she was really excited. I had just been putting a little on the floor before. So I think she ate too much, or maybe ate a feather. Took food away and making sure she gets alot of water. Also giving yogurt. I would like to try the oil thing. What kind of oil can I use. I have Becel 100% canola and sunflower oils, would that be allright. Thanks
