So a couple of months ago I noticed one of my hens had a swollen crop. She didn't look good, she was pretty listless. So, I took her out and made her vomit, fed her yogurt and fluids. The next day she was better but not "better" you know? Mostly she was just struggling to get out of the holding coop and back to the flock. As soon as I let her out she took off back to her flock. She did OK then got worse again. DH asked if it was time to cull since I was just not up to doing surgery on her but I said we'd see how she did. Well, I figured she'd get really sick or die or get better. She hasn't. Her crop is a huge and she walks funny with it. But she's still getting around and still laying! And eating and following the flock. I tried emptying her crop again but it just seems to make her annoyed. If she seemed like she was really suffering I would cull, but she seems OK. Sort of. Am I being cruel? Would surgery really be easy?? Her crop feels like a bean bag.
