    Our 19 week old RIR hen is not acting right at all. She has thrown up some green liquid today and isn't her perky self. We planted some blueberry bushes yesterday and she may have gotten into the sulfur soil acidifier that we used on the bushes. Is it possible that she has been poisoned??? Please help! What do I do if she has?

    It's possible... Have you checked her crop? Is is hard and/or distended? The vomiting of green fluid makes me wonder if she has an impacted/sour crop. Are you sure she vomited it rather than it being poo?

    She definitely vomited. Her crop is squishy. We brought her inside and gave her some pedialite with an eyedropper. We have had issues with this particular hen before. She's had an infected crop and ended up on antibiotics for a week. Her symtoms don't seem to be the same as before but we are keeping a close eye on her.
