    I got her beginning Of October, and I think they were about 6-8weeks old at that time so approx 5 months

    How I have been treating her: I put 5ml in there water of tetracyline powder and refresh it every 24 hours. Also I have been spraying her with Vetericyn in her face/ eyes her eyes look better, but now she seems to have a very runny nose. Again she seems to be showing improvement till I noticed her sitting away from my other 3 girls last night and her feathers looked a mess ( Not sure if they are picking on her now, but they where all good the other day, not sure what happened) My Other 3 where sitting under the heat lamp I have out for them, she was away from that, near the food.

    How I am now treating her ONLY ( As of last night): upped the dose to 10ml in each ( water & Food) and have her in the house, with water, and her food all treated with the tetracyline powder.

    She just stinks, This morning it did not smell in the area she is in, until she started to moved around, It smells like chicken, but very strong, garbage kinda of smell maybe, sweet and stinky. She is mouth breathing, when she shakes her head, fluid flys off ( Snot?) and when she does eat I notice she like chokes it down? She extends her neck and her feather will fluff out as she try's to swallow...

    She is the one in my picture! FYI

    ok, after a quick research on what a crop is, it feels squishy, and looks golf ballish? I found a pic that kinda looks like how she is starting to look, I can take a picture of her tonight and post it in the morning, I cant seem to figure out how to upload pictures from my iphone)

    This is NOT Her! But a image I found, that looks similar, her bulge is not that big and maybe a little higher up? but it does make it look like her stomach area is caved in like that.. make sense?

    Thanks Pat! I keep seeing all the new baby posts and they are soo cute!! Good luck to you! :)

    I am prolly driving my BF nuts with all this, since we have not had them long and this is happening, I may just make an appointment at the vet for Friday, it's about an hour form here in Quakertown, only place that have a bird specialists near me and Friday is the only day that vet is available. I should prolly really find out what she has to make sure my other girls are not at risk and I don't want to keep adding "healthy" birds if this is a real seriuous sickness

    I'm trying to be good. I have eggs chirping and rocking and want to just grab them and crack them open and start hugging chicks. BUT I want them to do their own thing.
