    Hey folks I could use your help. I have a white leghorn who is my best layer who has a combination of issues. First off she has a floppy comb which is has turned mostly purple. Secondly she seems to have a crop issues as well. She has been drinking a lot of water for two or three days straight with eating very little. I've massaged her crop to try to remove the contents creating the blockage or the blockage I think she must have. I remove quite a bit of water and some grass occasionally. I've given her some olive oil to help the obstruction pass. She also has watery poo as of today. Poor girl laid an egg today but not sure she will make it another day. Any ideas?

    To add, she is right at one year old. The other 7 hens are exhibiting no signs of illness.
