I've read every thread on here about impacted crop. I'm getting worried. I have a black sex-link hen that has had an impacted crop for almost two weeks. It was first the size of a golfball, I cut back on her food and extras and massaged it and gave her oil. It didn't go down. I grew to the size of a baseball almost dragging the ground. She has lost feathers on the skin of it. I finally brought her into the shop in her own crate two days ago and cut out all her food and we've given her a little olive oil and apple cider vinegar for two days. She walking around, she laid an egg, but has had bad diarreah, and the crop is hard and fills like it's filled with sand/hay/material. It's been impacted off and on for a month but never like this. If it doesn't go down I don't know what to do. The vest is closed when I get home and they said the only person that could see a chicken is out until Saturday, and I do not have the surgical equipment to do surgery myself, although I've thought about it. Can she live like this? I'm just getting worried about her.
