Hey, I'm new to Backyard Chickens and my Easter Egger hen has been having crop issues for close to a week now. It started when I noticed that her crop wasn't emptying overnight like our other hens. She always had a walnut sized hard lump in it. I did some research on this forum and found that it was likely a crop impaction (I suspect she had been eating the hay that we use for bedding in our coop. I brought her inside and had her in a liquid diet, with grits available to help her digest, for a day to see if she would clear the impaction on her own -no luck. Next, based on more advice, I fed her a scrambled egg, soaked with oil to try and 'grease the pipes' and make passing the impaction easier, I fed her small amounts of yogurt also. All of this with regular crop massages. Her poops have been a combination of watery, clear ones, and semi-firm ones with grits in them. As of last night her crop was large and squishy and she was 'vomiting up' bad smelling clear fluids. I'm thinking that her crop has now soured, and I am looking for any advice from more experienced chicken owners on how to treat this. My little hen is still laying every day and, other than the large and bad smelling crop, is not behaving any differently than normal, but I am still worried. She is one of our original hens that we hatched ourselves almost a year ago, our hens are a part of our family and I really want her to be okay. Any advice and knowledge is much appreciated, THANK YOU.
