Impacted crop is big and hard, where a sour crop is big and puffy, and may have a bad smell from the beak. Crop impaction can occur with eating long strands of grass that gets stuck, or from eating a large piece of food that won't go through. Sour crop can happen after a long period of impacted crop and can be fungal or bacterial. Both of these are best treated by giving a lot of water and massaging the crop, and no whole grains, but only mushy food like wet mash, yogurt, applesauce, and eggs.
