My 1 1/2 year old Cochin hen has an impacted crop. It is softball size and very hard. This has been on going for a couple of weeks. I am giving her vinegar water, olive oil and cod liver oil. She still wants to eat. I have her in a large crate in the garage now. Spoke with a vet and they agreed that the cost is too much. I am not sure if I can go through with the home surgery described here. She does still eat and poops but not as much as she should. I have withheld food since yesterday. Don't want to cull her. Should I put her back in with her coop mates and just let her be? She doesn't appear to be in pain but I know this is bad.
