    I took my brown shaver chicken to the vet on wednesday as she was very lerthargic and had a swollen crop. the vet made me vomit and gave us some antibiotic, the crop has decreased in size, but is still very squishy. i massage it and she burps. She hasn't eaten much of anything i have tried on. The only liquid she has is the water we force her drink. she seems to moving round a bit more today, still not eating. The thing that is worrying me now is that she had not had a bowel movement since before we took her to the vet (this is the third day). Is there anything i can do to get her to have one. i think it will make her feel better
