    I need help with my Americana she isn't eating but drinks some water, but then she will throw it up. She isn't walking either she will get up time to time and takes a few steps, and then goes back to sleep. Her crop is very big. Last time she pooped was about an hour ago and it was green and white. She is very light and weak. She is very thin, to the point were you can feel every thing popping out. There are no wounds and nothing Broken she just isn't eating. She is only about 3 months. Please help need answers.:([​IMG]

    Oh no, I just read this. It could have been sour crop.

    If it was sour crop you should have caught it earlier, but it seems as you were a few days late in order to treat it.

    To prevent this from happening to the other girls check there crop every morning and make sure it's fine. Also consider worming all of them as soon as possible.

    Agreed. Sour crop can happen due to worms. A chickens crop should be empty & down every morning unless you don't get to them before they eat. Sour crop can also happen from too much of certain treats, like fruit, an impacted crop, or bad feed among other issues. I'm dealing with a hen with sour crop right now. Usually all least once a year at least one gets crop issues. With sour crop their crop will be swollen, like a water balloon, a fowl smell will come from their mouth, & they can vomit on their own if not caught early & their crop is very large.
