    So I go out to check my chickens today, and notice my silkie rooster is stumbling around and acting weak. This happened to one of my others, and he died a few days later. He has a somewhat bloated crop and when I opened his pen, he hobbled over to me. I don't want what happened to my last roo to happen again. Thanks! I'll post pictures if needed.

    Could this be sour crop? I'm just throwing this out there.

    Are there any other symptoms besides bloated crop and acting weak?

    That's what i thought, but i woke up this morning and he was perfectly fine. I gave him probiotics and electrolytes and now he's perked up a lot. I figure he was just having digestion problems.
