    My EE girl has an impacted crop. Someone on here told me to use Krill oil and if I didn't have that fish oil. Does that work and if so does it work better then olive oil? I really need help if I don't figure out the impacted crop thing soon we will end up having to put her down. [​IMG]Molly was one of our first birds and my favorite and I am not ready to put her down. I wish I knew someone near me in Acworth, Ga that would treat chickens. If I did I would just take her to the vet. So if anyone knows of someone don't be shy please tell me.

    Hmmmm, I already have olive oil. I was just wondering if the fish oil was suggested because, it works better then olive oil.
