I have a 3 year old hen that is just sitting/laying around with her eyes closed, not really eating or pooping, but is drinking a little. Her comb is pale and flopped over. There is no smell to her breath but her crop is liquidy feeling. I have her separated in a dog cage, but I dont know what to do next. Is it sour crop or just getting close to her time to go?

To determine if your girl has a crop issue you will need to check her crop first thing in the morning before she eats or drinks.
Is it empty or full?
Full= crop issue
Empty= no crop issue

I am so willing to go into great detail on how to help sour or impacted crop if needed. Please let me know if that is the case after you check her in the am.

Best wishes, Beth
