Last week my alpha hen died of what seemed like sour crop. No treatment helped, she was in steady decline and died. Now a related hen, much lower rank, is showing similar symptoms, lethargy, not eating, dehydrated, odd light coloured slimy poop, but her crop seems fine and her belly is tight like a water balloon, Also very hot. She is doing a sort of rhythmic straining, don't know if she is maybe having trouble breathing. Can't feel in egg problems, She is moulting and hasn't laid in a week or so. Help please!
