I just rescued (adopted) three chickens from the SPCA. Apparently they were very sick and had been aggressively treated with antibiotics and sulfates. Two of them are fine, one I noticed had a purple crop last week and looked sick so I brought her into the house. She had watery stool with undigested particles so I looked at the poo chart and after she didn't eat or drink for 3 days, I started her on antibiotics because I didn't know what else to do. I also started to syringe feed her cooked oatmeal with plain yogurt and probiotics then added chicken feed. I then realized she had a doughy crop. So yesterday I started the ginger/cinnamon/baking soda/lemon/water treatment. I did forget to add the lemon the third time I treated her. This morning I noticed that she wouldn't stop drinking. Nthe water had a gel consistency near the edge so I dumped the water, washed the container and gave her fresh water. She kept drinking for two hours when I realized her crop was huge. Yes, I was stupid not to take the water away sooner. This water also started to thicken. I have not been able to treat her today although I will resume yesterday's treatment of her crop goes down. She really smelled when I got her, almost like onions or body odor. There was never any smell from her crop. Suggestions? Thanks!
