I had a Lavender Orpington about 4months old (bought from a different backyard breeder, we didn't raise it) in mid Aug. Very healthy up until last Sunday when I noticed him quite lathargic. Not eating and just hanging out by himself closing his eyes. I did some reading on byc and it looked like it could have been a blockage in his crop. I continued to look for what to do with him and it looked like some mineral oil or olive oil along with a massage in the crop area could break up whatever was blocking it. I saw a video with a farmer holding his bird by its feet and massaging the crop to help him get rid of what was in there. I did that and it seemed to work. He seemed much better in the next few days he was back to himself running around and pecking the ground. Went to let the chickens out this morning and he was dead. I checked for any trauma thinking that one of the roosters may have killed him through the night (which would have been odd as they have been housed together for about 6 weeks) Could what I have done with him been the cause of his death? Now my other Orpington is showing the same signs since yesterday. We now have her in the house away from the others so she won't get pecked at. Honey and water is what we are offering and her crop is like a water balloon. What should I do for her?
