I have a Modern Game Bantam hen that will not eat or drink on her own. Her neck seems bent and she makes a swallowing motion sometimes over and over. I have been giving her vitamin water with a dropper yesterday and today. I don't see any improvement. I can't get her to eat.

Anyone have any ideas?

Could she have an injury like a dislocated/partial fracture of the neck? Games are a bit flighty, so I am wondering if she didn't launch herself into a wall at full tilt.

Thanks for the replies, but it's not sour crop. There is nothing at all in her crop. I did wonder if she was injured, but I don't think that's it either. I'm at a loss. She won't last long this way.
