    Hey guys I have a full grown Rooster with air in crop. Seems his food is not passing and he has slight difficulty breathing, more so when eating.

    I can also hear gurgling sounds when he's breathing. I've given him yogurt for the beneficial bacteria to address the sour crop. Tried giving him some hemp oil to soften any compaction.

    Any other suggestions?

    This is a very old thread, and you may get more advice with a new thread of your own with something such as "sour crop problem" in the title here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/threads/add/forumId/10

    In the meantime, here are some articles to read about sour crop:
