    I have an 8 week old Barnevelder with a gassy crop. I have been draining it by massage and holding him upside down. I get it pretty empty and there doesn't seem to be anything in there but then it fills up with gas. He has been this way for 2 days, is pooping and feels pretty good. The stuff that comes out of his crop is not smelly. He is separated from the flock and is eating mostly yogurt now,some mashed garlic a little olive oil, some vitamins. I can't stop the crop from filling with air. Would it be safe to try Beano or some other human antigas agent? Or, is there a food I can give him that is antigas? He doesn't really seem to have a sour crop nor an impacted crop just a puffy crop, like a big balloon.

    Hmmm, nobody has an opinion about this? I'm trying to do more research, i know charcoal is an old time remedy for some digestive problem
