In the Brooder
- Feb 18, 2020
This is what I did when I had a chicken with sour crop. I loosened his crop with water and I made her regurgitate. You have to make sure they don't aspirate. They can't cough because they don't had a gag reflex. I expelled all the yeast and infection and feed her yogurt and powerade. Yogurt replaced the nasty bacteria in her crop with healthy ones. She was cured from the sour crop, but died of other health complications a few days later. I would do allot of research before doing anything like regurgitation.I think my roo has sour crop. He's not eating but he won't stop drinking. He seems to like spit up. I know that chickens can't vomit but he has liquid coming out of his mouth. His crop is big and squishy and feels like a water balloon. He's not crowing and is slow moving if he moves at all. I'm not sure what to do but everything I google about what's going on with him comes to sour crop. I do know that he's not impacted because there is nothing hard anywhere around his crop. It's just a big soft squishy lump. I don't want him to have any lasting problems from this and want to get it cleared up as soon as possible. I have him separated from the others. I was reading another post where it said nystatin is safe for them. I have some in cream form that was prescribed for my baby when he had diaper rash. Can I use this?
