I only ask because I had a bit of an impacted crop scare with my BO today, and rather than having to force the olive oil (mixed with a drop of ACV) down her throat, as I'd feared, she positively lapped it up, sucking it off the back of my hand and pecking the syringe for more! I gave her loads before giving her crop a good massage, but I wonder if 'loads' is too much? It was probably 5ml in total, and although the golf-ball-sized hard lump doesn't seem to have got smaller, it does appear to move a bit now and is more squishy, and she's acting completely normal. The neck-bobbing and general weird head movements (which I assume she was doing in an effort to try to get the stuff to move down through her crop) have also stopped, and there were some interesting squelching/digestive-type noises coming from the crop/throat after I finished! She even seemed to enjoy the massage and fell asleep on my lap afterwards (she's never done that before!). I suspect I may have acted too soon, and perhaps it was simply a load of grain which she wolfed down too fast and it got a bit stuck, rather than a truly impacted crop. She seemed to really love the attention anyway, the faker! I wonder if all that oil might have some ill-effects now though... does anyone know?
