    Hmm. Might be sour crop. My girl's was squishy and full and she was vomiting when I picked her up. She was also twisting her neck around in circles.. Does his breath smell bad?

    Well... if it were me, I would maybe watch him overnight, and if his crop still hasn't gone down by morning, I would induce vomiting.
