    My RIR is a little over a year old. She has always been a good layer. The last few days she has not been doing much energy wise. She won't perch at night unless I put her up. Her abdomen is very swollen and she has a poopy but. Her poop is green. She has labored breathing. I brought her in a couple nights ago and tried a warm bath and kept her in her own cage. No site of an egg yet. She does want to eat worms and a little of her food. Not sure what else to do... any advice can help... Thanks

    Pull her feed and check to see if her crop is still before you feed. If it is could be impacted crop. And see if there is a foul odor coming from her mouth could be sour crop. Keep us posted with any new symptoms.
