I have a 4yr BO that is moving around very slowly, eats very little. She acts like she wants to eat, will pick a bit and walk away. She is extremely thin.
I recently felt her croup and it was very squishy and when I tipped her forward brown liquid poured out. Today as she leaned forward to eat, brown liquid came out again. I know I'm losing her, due to her weight but I would appreciate any advice that could help. She is the sweetest little girl, a lap sitter.

I had a similar issue a couple years ago. I massaged my hens crop two days in a row and it resolved her issues. I think sometimes they get plugged up. Check for a foul smell from the mouth which would indicate sour crop, which is a different matter.
