    this morning, when I went to check on my 2-week-old white broiler chicks, I noticed that one of them was very lethargic and kept laying down. Her crop was completely full, even though I had only put out their food a little while ago. I think that it might still be full from yesterday, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions?

    I have done some research and I think she might have sour crop. She smells funky and I'm pretty sure she threw up. I found some suggested medications online, but are they safe for chicks?
