    I just found several hens with Hay hanging from their mouths, and squishy crops, when rubbed causes them to 'burp'. [​IMG]

    should I give molasses water? olive oil on bread & crumbles? [​IMG]

    currently all are Drinking ACV water out of Plastic bowls in the coop & run.
    All metal feeders & metal waterers have been soaked in 10% boiled bleach water, allowed to cool, then Scrubbed, rinsed many times, allowed to completely air dry. before being filled & returned to Coop.

    Updated/edited :


    well they all seem to be doing ok today, and the crops are about normal again.
    so far they have had Molasses water 1 time, ACV twice and some wheat/rye Bread with some olive oil dribbled over it.

    they seem to be adjusting fine without my assistance, though I did massage crops a bit again this morning.
