    Wondering if I gave her some oil in a syringe if that would help her get the corn down from the crop? Anyone?

    Give her the oil and make sure she has access to fresh water. Also sometimes yogurt helps things go down. Good luck.
  5. Years ago (and even now) that's what many chickens were fed and survived on. It's just whole kernal corn that hasn't been ground to a finer texture. She should be fine. Her gizzard will do all the grinding she needs...
