My leghorn pullet is 5.5 months old.

She had a sour crop and is on the mend. It has been 2 days since I found her sick and I have been playing "Dr. Mom"

Her crop has finally started moving the food again and I am nervous about starting her on pellets just yet.

I have been feeding her yogurt and spinach mixed.

Is it possible to "over yogurt" her?

Before the TLC....



2 days later...

Wow, she looks muuuuch better.

It's probably fine to feed her just yogurt for now, knowing that it's a short-term thing. The nutritional range won't be optimum but if it's what gets her from sick to outside, I say go for it. Clearly your nursing care has helped!

thanks.

I put some layer pellets in a small bowl and added water so that they were mushy tonight. She ate it up.

No more food for her tonight.
I will check her crop in the AM and see if it is emptying good.

Excellent! I just lost my best Blue Orpington hen from sour crop (may not have been her only issue, though) a couple days ago. As far as the yogurt, it will just make some runny poop if you overdo it, but it wont actually hurt her. Seems to be the magic pill she needed! I'm so happy she's better.
