I think my EE has an impacted crop, but it's not as large/hard as some I read about when studying up last night. Yesterday, I noticed that she was on the roost still when all the other girls had come out to the run for the morning. I assumed she was getting ready to lay an egg, so I went to work and didn't think about it. Last night, she was just standing in the corner of the coop, and seemed to be slightly panting - beak open a little big, and she was generally acting listless. I gave her a little bit of bread and another hen came and stole it, but then she ran over and stole it back, so she wasn't so sick that she had no interest in food. I picked her up and checked her over, and her crop was about the size of a golf ball - it feels sort of like a hackey sack filled with wet sand - like there is a lot of grit in there. I brought her inside and she quit the panting pretty quickly - it was about 90 outside and high 70's in the house. I gave her 4 ml of olive oil and massaged her crop about 3x last night and left her inside with water only. If she pooped last night, it was not much. Put her back in the coop when I closed it up for the night, and brought her back inside at 7:00 this morning and gave her 4 ml of red wine and massaged her crop and left her in a box with only water, then around 11:00 gave her about a tablespoon of plain yogurt. She didn't show immediate interest in that, and I haven't been back downstairs to see if she ate it or not. Her eyes are clear, no nasal discharge, sneezing or anything - she seems alert, but very lethargic, and hasn't protested the doctoring, even though my hens aren't all that tame. Also, I've noticed that she is not laying down - she just stands in one place. She was literally standing up on the roost in the exact same place and position where I put her to bed last night. The crop is not hard - I can manipulate the contents, but it felt just as full this morning as it did last night. She hasn't layed an egg since last Saturday, but I can't remember any odd behavior before yesterday. She is a 6 month old EE, and normal weight. My other 5 girls are all healthy and acting sassy. I feet them Flock Raiser with free-choice oyster shell and granite grit, as well as scratch with lentils and sunflower seeds in it, and various kitchen scraps (greens, fruits, & bread mostly). Is there anything else I need to check for or do for her? I'm planning to give more oil later today, and keep up with the crop massages, and no food at night to see if the crop empties. However, I have to be out of town Monday night through Thursday morning, so I'm a little worried about getting this resolved before then. DH would be less than thrilled if I asked him to give my chicken wine and massages while I'm out of town. Darn it, I checked her at 7:00 and she seemed about the same. Just went out there and she was dead. The rest of the flock seems perfectly healthy. I just can't figure out what might have happened to her.
