    Dottie my mottled java hen has a impacted, sour, and pendulous crop. After trying many things we took her in to an avian vet. She is getting her crop flushed in a few days and needs a crop bra to recover. Does anyone know how to make one that is simple and easy? Or at least has instructions? The vet gave us a picture that looks very complicated had know instructions. Please help Dottie!

    Tie it crossing her back, left under wibg to right over shoulder, right under wing to left over shoulder. Careful to make sure hackles arent tied down. You should be able to place 2 fingers underneath the straps comfortably.
