I am not one for being able to diagnose my birds illnesses, but I have one bird who I thought had worms, wormed her, and then I felt her crop. I am assuming it was impacted, maybe some hay from the coop that the goats had brought in. Goats are messy. I felt a soft lump in her crop, and I massaged it up with olive oil, then some ACV, both from eye droppers. Her crop was also empty this morning. YAY!! Thought I would try this that Wynette had suggested, and this morning instead of prepping for crop surgery, my bird was actually very active. More so than in the past week.

Thanks to you for posting this and Wynette for sharing the info. I did not know that wine can be used in a pinch.
