    whats the difference,a few days ago i noticed my br acting wierd. she had white watery poop. after reading on the two im more confussed than ever. her crop is big,shes drinking but not eating. i squeezed/rubbed her crop. she sort of burped a few times,i didnt notice a smell. her crop feels soft,not hard. i tried to give her some oil soaked bread,she wont eat it. i saw the post with the surgery on the impacted crop and im not sure i could do that. what else should i be doing for her.

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    I am not sure....I had a hen that had a large crop, she was lethargic too and I just rubbed it several times though out the day and then made sure she was in the coop that night. The next morning she was all better.

    i have rubbed it twive today and once yesterday. she still seems to be pecking around,just not eating a whole lot. im hoping it is just sour and she will come out of it. ive already had one trip to the vet this week and am about broke from that one! plus i dont think there are any vets around that see chickens!!!
