    My hen has had a squishy crop for a few weeks. Took her to the vet on Thursday. They took a culture and won't give her meds until Wednesday. Afraid she won't make it. Her condition is rapidly declining. She keeps sneezing and gurgling. Won't eat, drink or move around. What can I do now to try and save her? Will withholding food and water for a time bring down the crop? ACV in water? yogurt? Anything I can get at the feed store? I'm afraid to drain her due to affixation risk. But she needs this drained now. Please, help.
    Thank you.

    Stopped gurgling and sneezing. Now she has a pale face and shrunken comb. Still alert but tired. Still not eating or drinking. Please help.
