    How's his crop feels like ?
    Do you check his crop daily in the morning
    Check his crop first is it hard ? Lumpy or Full with water

    Do you give grit to ur chicken for food digestion ? Grits are small stones we give for food griding
    What food u give him? As primary food


    If his crop is full hard I will withhold food for 17-24hrs till his crop fully empty massage his crop in downward motion with light hand

    If his crop is hard it will be impacted
    Give 1ml olive oil of vegetable oil for realese the impction.


    If it is full of water like a balloon then it's a sour crop you should give him some raw unfiltered unpasteurized apple cider vinegar in water 1 teaspoon in a cup
    This will clear the crop if this not work
    Fennel seeds tea

    Hope ur chicken recover

    What he ate ?
    Hard crop is impacted crop
    If massaging not work try give him some feenel tea
    Boil some fennel (sauf) in cup of water crush the fennel before boil .
    It will make his crop moving don't give him food till his crop gets flat

    You should not give him.food when crop is not getting down
    Giving food without crop empty will make the food fermant smell his beak if any smell is there like sour

    Do u give him grit pebbals?

    No why chavanprash these things are not for birds

    You should give him fennel tea
    Make it strong nd make fresh everyday it will help him poop ND clear his crop

    And please don't give him food until his rest food inside crop is not empty
    Being lethageric in hard crop is not a good thing

    If his crop didn't empty in 24hrs
    U should see medically route
