    Guys? I need some help fast!!!
    I've got a 1 year old girl out in the coop, and she's in the middle/last stages of moult
    when I picked her up, she vomited a liquid out.
    I put her up on roost, and she has all of her feathers out from her body
    I put some scratch up there with her, but she just pecked at it - not really eating
    I can't tell if she's cold or lathargic!
    What do you guys think I should do?

    I don't know how cold it is by you, but first thing I'd do is put her in a dog carrier and bring her inside. Then please go to the top and look at the sticky post and answer all the questions for further evaluation.

    when you picked her up is it possible that you put pressure on her crop?.. maybe she just finished drinking and it was nothing
    how does her comb look

    I'd bring her in, warm her up and see what happens.

    Personally, I would bring her in if I had a warm place for her. It may make you feel better and that's important, too. [​IMG]

    It could be impacted crop or sour crop (among other things). Is her crop hard? Is it squishy like a water balloon? Or just normal like a moveable bean bag?
