    My hen has had diarrhea for a few days now and it is slowly getting more solid but still liquidy. There is still a small, soft ball in her crop in the morning so she isn't passing all her food. She has had this impacted crop since thursday morning. I'm at the point where I want to give her docusate sodium to help pass the thing but she is currently on antibiotics, so I was wondering if this would hurt her if I give her both??
    Thank you.

    I forgot to add that she is acting very well otherwise, she is hungry and is looking for food. It's like the impaction doesn't really bother her??
