    One of my 5 week old chicks got into my layer pellets for my big girls. Her crop is full of the large pieces. I tried to massage it but the pieces are to big to massage out of the crop. I would just like to know what else to do, and if i should expect the chick to die or not.

    Try giving it olive oil and continue to massage the crop. If that doesn't work then try to induce vomiting.

    How do you induce the vomiting?

    Try massaging the crop in the direction of the mouth. That might get the chick to spit it out.
