my family left town for 2 days a few. days ago. we had some family friends who had experience watching chickens watch our chicken for 2 days. when we came back, all of the chicken seemed to be normal. yesterday, one of our chickens, Starry(who I will post a picture of below) stopped eating and drinking, and didnt move that much, and also threw up. her crop was very soft and liquidy, and much larger than it was a few days ago. we eventually figured out that she most likely had sour crop. we isolated her away from the other chickens and filled up a gallon of water with 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and portioned that mixture out into a water container for her. we also gave her some mildly flavored yogurt( because that was all we had). She started to eat and drink a little. Below is a picture of her: also, I am currently editing this, after I got the chicken to regurgitate the barf in its crop. Is that bad? She’s acting more normal but she doesn’t have the full crop
