    UGH! I have to perform my first (and let's all pray ONLY) crop surgery tomorrow. I can't believe it. I've tried everything and this poor chicken's crop is so impacted, it looks like surgery is the only option. Anyone in CT have experience and want to give me a hand?? I'm a nervous wreck!!!! If not, wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for us.

    It is done. Here is a picture of what was in there...YUCK! I just hope I stitched her up correctly. That was difficult to do the crop and outer skin separately. I washed the wound with betadine and saline and sprayed with blue kote. I'm going to give her water w/antibiotics to further prevent any infection. I sterilized EVERYTHING we used very well. I hope she recovers well. She was up walking around and preening immediately after the surgery. I put her in a dark area alone hoping she would just rest a while.

    Quote:Haha...I wouldn't say I am an expert by any means. Let's see how she heals. If she heals up fine, then I will consider it successful.
