I was hanging out with one of my hens, wayching TV, but it was time to put her inside. I put her back on the perch, and right as I did, some liquid came out of her beak. I was worried but refrained from panicking. However, the next day my mother informed me that it had happened again. I was told that her mucus was brownish. My mom felt the hen's crop, and she told me it felt squishy and bubbly just like sour crop. That got me concerned, so now I've come here. What's the best course of action to help my hen through this? I've seen some videos in people holding their hen, facing her downward, and massaging her crop for about 15 seconds before bringing her back to her normal position, encouraging the fluids in her crop to expel. I'm kind of scared to perform this action, so I was wondering if there are any alternatives.
