I'm a newbie. I have 6 Golden Comets that are about 2 months olds. One of them, I noticed had a sizeable lump on her front right side on Sunday. I talked to 2 'chicken friends' and they both said 'oh that's the crop, you can sometimes see it after they've eaten.' I didn't mess with it too much, but it was squishy and kinda freaked me out. Yesterday it was bigger, and it was squishy in the AM. By lunch time it was harder and had spread to both sides, so I started research. I got the chicken to vomit 1x, was just a little yellowy green slime. Then I massaged her for awhile and heard/felt some gurgly stuff and thought she'd pooped but hadn't. I quarantined her in a pet taxi with water. Later in the evening, my husband moved the pet taxi thus spilling the water and dumped the bedding out of it, so I don't know if she pooped yesterday after I quarentined her or not. I 'vomited' her again last night about was about 6 hrs after the first time, as her crop felt 'doughy'. This time there was some chunks of starter ration, and some green roughage that I suspect was the cause and more slime, and there was about 30% relief immedietely in size of the crop. I tried the dropperful of oil, but wasn't very successful, so I poured the oil into the rim of the waterer and offered some yogurt but she wasn't interested. I left a little yogurt in the pet taxi for overnight, but she hadn't touched it this AM. She did poop overnight (I don't know how much to expect from one???). Her crop is still quite swollen, but it was squishy, and I've not felt anything hard in there at any point. I did notice this morning while I watching her walk around (pecking at the ground) that the viscosity of her crop changes depending on the way she's standing. With her head up, it firms some (doesn't change size) and then when she bends her head down, it loosens. Also she's throwing her head around like is mentioned in some of the other posts like she's trying to dislodge something. She doesn't smell any worse than the other chickens, though. But since she pooped, I'm going to offer the oil soaked bread and see if she'll eat that. So do I have impacted crop, sour crop or what? And what now?????? I can't justify taking her to the vet- she's not a pet. Thanks!
