on saturday my husband and a neighbor performed crop surgery on one of our hens. her crop had become distended three weeks ago. i brought her to the vet and the vet thought something was stuck in the bottom of her crop and quoted us $400-600. for the surgery. we decided not to have the vet do the surgery and did research on doing it ourselves. she survived surgery and is doing well. eating, drinking, pooping but her crop is still large. after a crop surgery how long should it take for the chicken's crop to go back to normal? i feel like we may have not gotten rid of the problem because her crop is still distended.
