    My JG has a crop the size of a baseball. I started treating it last night, but I can assume she's had it for a week or two-that's how long she hasn't been sleeping on the roost. I do not think she's pooping. I think she has been vomiting up some green fibrous clumps that smell kind of like tar+mint (?) very mild. She's been getting anything watery and mushy with oil for food.

    Is it too late?
    Should I do the surgery?
    Should I wait and message for a day or two more?

    I'm pretty scared.

    Well I've had my good cry. She started dribbling poo. I can massage her crop and mold it like clay. My mother makes this stuff that's eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and onion. I pureed it into the texture of applesauce, and she loves it. She ate some, not alot, maybe 1/4 cup.
