    I have a chicken with sour crop. I was wondering since weve been torturing her, I could treat her with a tiny piece of bacon. (So she doesnt hate me forever)

    How have you been treating the sour crop?

    Leave off the bacon, she's not going to hate you.

    She seems to have a cold as well. Her nose is dripping, coughing, and very tired.

    We are giving her probiotics and yogurt.

    Can you post some photos or a video of her? For video upload to youtube and provide a link.
    How old is she?
    Have you looked inside her beak for any lesions?
    Where are you located in the world (state/country)?
    Coughing with mucous sounds like respiratory illness. Do you have vet care?

    I'm sorry! She is not feeling well at all is she? Looks like the one behind her is not well either.

    Being in Canada it's going to be hard to find anything to treat her with without contacting a vet.
    How long have you had her?

    The symptoms you describe sounds like respiratory illness, antibiotics may help with secondary infection. Tylan50, one of the "cyclines" or Baytril could be used.
    Getting a fecal float to check for Coccidiosis and worms would be a good idea too.
