Initial thread can be found here... https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=4277330#p4277330 I operated on my little silkie hen last night for a severely impacted crop but only managed to get half the gunk out - should I operate again to try and get the rest out? I only noticed this morning that her crop is still quite distended and full of rocks and what I feel is possibly tangled grasses. She is broody so I don't know if she's feeling better or not, she stands immobile in the corner of her wire-bottomed crate, all poofed up. She is passing normal poops, the first in days. She is drinking. She cannot eat as she keeps regurgitating pale brown liquid - is this a bad sign?? Will the rest of the junk in her crop eventually pass through? She is not allowed any access to grit anymore, no hard grains or hard foods, etc. My poor little girl, she is quite weak right now and I fear that a 2nd surgery might be dangerous, but at the same time if her crop is still impacted this isn't good either, right? Please help!
