In the Brooder
- Apr 28, 2017
Hi, I am new to posting in the forum. One of my chickens has a very large hard crop. I didn't notice until I saw her cone was layed over and she wasn't moving as quickly with the group as she normally did. I read up on treatments ie...fill with water and make them vomit, massage the crop, isolate, and various remedies to try. So I secluded her, tried putting 10cc water in then held her upsidedown but she would not vomit. Did I add enough water? I don't know if I should try more water not knowing if I am getting it in her lungs instead. Is there anything else that would be safer to try that has a good success rate. I recently lost a chicken that seemed to have the same thing but I didn't know about the crop issues.
