In the Brooder
- Aug 7, 2021
My hen ate a snake about 3 days ago and yesterday I noticed she had a huge impacted crop. I tried massaging it and could feel a lot of food in there. Its very hard and about the size of a softball. I separated her last night and cut her off from food for the whole day. It is evening time now and it is still the same size. The snake was about a foot long and she swallowed it whole by the way. I will try vegetable oil next as I've seen suggested and more massaging tonight but I'm new to chickens (6 months) and raised her from a chick.
