I posted this yesterday, but I'm going to start again to have it more organized and see if anyone has any ideas based on where my girl is now vs where she was 2 days ago. 3 days ago she was fine and is in the middle of molting with her feathers growing back in nicely and at a reasonable rate. The day before yesterday I noticed that one of my Brahmas had a solid mass of what seemed to be grass in her crop. Gave her a little oil and massage and no progress come morning. Yesterday, I gave her some more oil 30mL and more massage. Also gave ACV, some digestive enzymes and a raw egg that she ate up pretty happily. She was uninterested in eating anything else. This morning, no progress. We have gone from solid mass to what seems like mostly liquid, but none of the liquid seems to be moving through. Her poos are that blue green algae color and soft and mushy. Still has urates in there, so her kidneys are good. Today, she doesn't what any food, including egg. I gave her some more water about 15 mL (this is all with a tube down into her crop), mixed with organic, unsulfered blackstrap molasses and ACV and a few herbs that are supposed to help encourage digestion. If nothing moves out of her crop by morning, no more can be added; it's full. When we started it wasn't terribly large, but definitely blocked up. She's still scratching about, but I have her in a crate in the run when I'm not right there to watch her, so I can keep an eye on things. She had a ting of purple in her comb today, which probably isn't a good sign. Is this how impacted crop progresses or are we headed in the wrong direction? Is it time for crop surgery or does it sound like something else? This is a beloved girl and I want so much to help her! She's just over two and has lost a fair amount of weight but I'm thinking a reasonable amount of that is from the molting. She doesn't, however, have much more to lose. She's not skin and bones yet, though. Thoughts? Thanks so much!
