I have a new issue that I need some input on! In my 40 years of raising chickens this is a first for me! I have a hen who recently had a bout of sour crop. We treated her with the usually remedies and she seemed to rebound. After starting her back on moistened feed she relapsed. After a trip to the vet, some antifungals and gastoral stimulating meds she rebounded again. Started her on scrambled eggs, a bit of yogurt, vitamins and probiotics and all was well. Added a bit of wet cat food all is well still. We then started giving her runny oat meal and she crashed and burned again! It was bad and I decided we had nothing to lose so I started giving her "Magic", a concoction we give our goats when they are "off" and, well, they don't call it Magic for nothing! Went back to scrambled eggs and probiotic in her water and Magic twice a day and she's was good again. Made the mistake apparently of offering moistened feed after a week and she relapsed again. It has been almost a week since we put her back on scrambled eggs, Magic and wet cat food and she is doing really well. Talked to my vet and he agrees that there might be an allergy issue. Here is the 6 million dollar question, what do you feed a gluten / grain intolerant chicken during the winter when there isn't "pasture"? I thought about cooked rice or cracked corn, I know my other chickens love it but am a little gun shy with this little girl. I'm concerned about getting a good balanced diet for her. What do y'all think?
