    My hen has just recovered from sour crop and when I went to shut them in she had white froth all over her beak. I read that someone lost a rooster who started doing this because he had eaten a beetle and today I saw this hen eat a massive black beetle, so could this be why? How do I help her if it is?

    She is doing fine now thankfully! I think it might have been the beetle she ate as I have no clue what else it could have been! [​IMG]
