A stupid neighbor did pick up styrofoam....she was so sweet....

Thank you. I tube fed her about 12ml earlier today around 1pm. I gave her liquid diet you would give a young bird. Do you think I could still give her an egg tonight? I don't know how much a crop can hold. I don't want it to come back out. I am willing to try anything.
I would say so

Does her crop feel full? My girl wasn’t eating when I first brought her inside.

Mine isn't eating or drinking at all. I am not sure what full feels like. I can feel what I gave her earlier but it isn't so much that you can see it sticking out at all. I would guess that it is not full.
Definitely you can feed her then.

Okay, I gave her as much as I felt I could. I put her back in her makeshift bed and put a towel over her to keep her as warm I can. I will give her an egg in the morning after her meds and water if her crop is empty. Thank you so much for your help. All of ya'll are so wonderful for helping me. I am so grateful.

How is she? Can you ask the vet for this?
