    I believe my poor girl has sour crop, from what I have been searching, her crop is HUGE like a water balloon =(

    And yesterday I bought kefir and mixed some egg and egg shells in it, and she loved it! But it looks like shes either trying to throw up or has something stuck in her throat. poor baby, has an appetite, she eats! but just sits in one spot now =(

    How do I get her to throw up??

    Well you could try giving her some warm water, and massaging her neck gently. You can also give her a little bit of olive oil, and massage her neck.
