    today I went to my coop and found my pullet (5 months old) sitting there by herself and sleeping when I call for food she wakes up with one eye opened shes still active as usual but sleeps sometimes she eats and drinks normal her closed eye is a little watery no bubbles its not like a big discharged and her nose too no discharge not sure but I don't think she has respiaorty infection I gave her some yogurt, and cinnamon, oregano, she looks a bit better and now she on the roost.

    Hi,

    I have no experience of dealing with impacted crop, but type "treating impacted crop" in the search bar - there are many threads.

    Good luck

    You really need to stop buying birds until you work out how to care for them properly or your existing birds get healthy. I have lost track of how many sick bird that died posts you have had over the last few months! You are feeding them a very poor long term diet and they have had everything from coccidiosis to possible mareks to respitory disease and now this.

    Get your birds on a proper diet. Drop the milk products (they are not mammals they cannot digest it in large quantities) and get them on layer feed. You said you can buy that.

    You really need to stop adding birds till your flock has been disease free for some time and then quarantine them so you don't bring disease back again.

    everyone feeds them only one thing that's fodder seeds since I was a kid nothing wrong everday laying but I think its only my chicks that are having problem because all my neighbors have chickens and some are away from me atleast 2 meters from my coop to theirs but theirs are healthy 1 only buy chicks that die 3 months to 5 months old older chicken (laying hens) never get problems only the young ones I had a coop for the old ones that are still alive and the chick coop all dead everyone here is like this not sure why the layer feed is only fodder seed and corn pellets I just said layer feed forgot to say pellets

    Please take this into consideration OP. You don't want to be killing your birds, no matter why. If your neighbors are the problem, you still need to stop buying birds until all problems are taken care of. Do what's right for your animals. Don't be selfish, they're lives are in your hands.
