One of my 2 yo BO hens may have a crop impaction and need some input on my plan. I have read the articles on crop issues and think she has one but is not sick like I would expect. She is a glutton, the largest BO in my flock and kinda lazy. Always the first in line for treats. For the past few days, she looks totally normal all day, but afternoon treat time looks like she is having trouble swallowing. But keeps eating! She appears to be able to eat and drink, but frequently opens beak like a minor pant. Her crop is huge, about 1 large handful, but not pendulous. Have not been able to check her crop in the morning, just in the afternoon. Today, she ate boiled eggs and it was obvious a mouthful was still there and she still tried to eat more and more. I was able to take the treat tray away. She continues the panting behavior for a while and then it stops until the next afternoon treat gorge. I had a commercial flock block in the run, it was way too soft and just a touch made it fall to pieces, I think she gorged on it. Have removed and discarded it. That's all I can blame on this. I don't want to wait til she gets ill. Gonna get Colace and try that tomorrow and will definitely stop any and all treats until this stops. Want to make sure I understand the Colace - 200 mg puncture capsules and mix in baby food or warm boiled egg twice in one day. No treats, but allow her to eat the crumbles food and free access to water. Is that right? Will place her in sick bay if she does start to look ill, but for now just limit all in flock to chicken crumbles, grit and water. I am sure I can hand feed her the colace mixture. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
