    I have posted about my chicken in need of the crop surgery. I am looking for someone near queen creek arizona that would be willing to do this surgery with me. Anyone out there near me that has done this before?

    Thank you!

    Chicken tender ...can you give me any advise?

    I am wondering this....I think there is a possibility that the crop ruptured and may be leaking food out...if that is the case, when I cut her open the food will be outside the crop....so...after opening the crop, and getting the material out...should I sew the crop back up? The lady that put up that very good example said she did not sew the crop...I am confused by that. Will it grow back together on its own? And if that is the case, maybe the rupture isnt growing back right??? I dont know what is going on...all I know is she is not able to get the food out of her crop and into her digestive tract.
