Hi
My favorite now broody ( she was free range and two days before hatching) Cochin hen Lani the day before yesterday probably had beginning of sour crop (no smell yet ) about 3/4 of tennis ball. I treated her with olive oil and massage and only liquid food. From hard it become like soft clay and yesterday it felt like liquid. She was eating two days but not pooping. Today she is pooping but not drinking any liquid. Her water balloon crop is not decrease in size. Does it mean that something stuck in her digestive track and is not allows even liquid to penetrate. This is my first problem with my chickens. I can't loose her. Please help. Sorry for my not native English.
Thank you

Sounds like you've read the Frequently Asked Questions -- sorry, they tell more about this than I know. I just had to tell you, love your signature line! Pretty clever use of English even if it were your native language!

Gppd lluck with your chicken.
