we didn't find anything unusual. She is a 1 year old EE, we've been watching her in the garage for a week, giving oil and massages. She had a baseball size crop and was losing a lot of weight. She was down to skin and bones. She wasn't having bowel movements. She didn't have any more food and her crop never got better. We decided the only way to save her was to cut it open and pull the stuff out. Some of the chickens had eaten on a styrofoam (sp) icechest, so we thought that maybe what was blocking her. She did great through the whole process, but we didn't find anything other than laying crumble in her crop. I flushed it out very well with sterile saline but that is all that was in there. Can a chicken get an impacted crop just from laying crumble? I am worried that the blockage is maybe further down and she's not going to get better. She is up this morning and looking pretty good. I will offer a little pediatlyte this afternoon. Do any of you think that the laying crumble could have been the cause?
