    I have a hen that has an impacted crop. Correct me if I am wrong(i looked this up on the internet), I got some vegetable oil in a syringe and slowly/carefully had her swallow it and massaged the mass, it broke up and everything is fine except she still has fluid in there! What should I do? She is the only one that is like this and she eats and acts normal.
