My first thread here, and not such a happy one... I know that there is lots of information about sour and impacted crop on here and elsewhere, and I'm familiarized myself with it, but my situation has taken a turn that I'm having trouble finding out more about, and I'm feeling like I need to act fast. I have a 3 and a half month old blue orpington that we noticed an impacted crop on a few days ago (actually, though the impaction was small, it had already soured). I helped her to regurgitate what she could, and tried to massage the impaction out. It wouldn't break up or pass, though, and over the last few days, until yesterday evening, it had become pretty large, maybe softball sized, and super hard. I had been denying her feed (tried some bread/buttermilk, but she wasn't interested), but she had stayed pretty active and chipper. I made an appointment to take her to the vet to have it cut out this morning. This morning, about an hour ago, though, I went to box her up to take to the vet, and the impaction seemed to be gone. Nothing but soft, soury stuff in the crop, which she had a hard time getting back up. Where did it go? My worry is that it has passed to the gizzard, is that a legit concern? She was more lethargic this morning, but maybe she's just starting to feel the lack of food? Anyway, she is at the vet, since it was clear that SOMETHING needs to happen... any thoughts? Thanks.
