    It might move thru ok. Is she still pooping today? If so, then I would think it is not clogging up her pipes. You could try putting some olive oil in syringe and squirting it down her throat a couple times today. Just watch her and she how she is getting along. Keep checking her crop area. If it is not bulging and slow moving, she might be able to pass it. But be on the look out for a soured crop. Make sure she eats plenty of stones and gritty stuff.

    I am sorry about your wrist also. Hope you heal up soon. [​IMG]

    Maybe give her something that will flush out her system and hopefully her stryofoam. But you should only flush them out if its a life death situtation. Hope she gets through it..
    Keep us posted. Wishing for your chick! [​IMG]

    Here's some ideas- Good luck

    LAXATIVE SOLUTIONS

    The following solutions or mixtures are recommended to flush the digestive system of toxic substances, most notably for treating birds exposed to botulism toxins.

    Molasses Solution


    Add one pint of molasses to 5 gallons of water

    Offer the drinking solution free-choice to the affected birds for about four hours. Treat severely affected birds individually if they cannot drink. Return the birds to regular water after the treatment period.

    As a supportive treatment for symptoms resulting from Cryptosporidia infection, often referred to as coronaviral enteritis, use:


    One quart molasses in 20 gallons of water

    Offer this solution free-choice for a period of up to 7-10 days. It is assumed that the molasses replaces certain minerals lost from diarrhea during the course of the infection.

    Epsom Salt Solution


    1 lb Epsom Salt per 15 lb feed
    -or-
    1 lb Epsom Salt per 5 gallons water for 1 day

    Give the epson salt feed mixture as the sole feed source for a one day period. This feed can be used only if the birds are eating. If the birds are not eating, use the water solution. If the birds are unable to eat or drink by themselves, use individual treatment with:


    1 teaspoon of Epsom Salt in 1 fl oz water

    Place the solution in the crop of the affected bird. This same amount of solution will treat 5-8 quail or one chicken.

    Castor Oil Therapy


    Dose individual birds with .5 oz castor oil.
