Hi, Earlier today I posted on the emergency forum about my silkie chick with an abnormal looking (to me) crop. She has this bulging crop all the time and she is the smallest chick in the brooder with 8 other silkies. I had separated her yesterday and cut off her food for 8 hours last night to see if the crop would empty. It still had a rather big bulge to it this morning. When she was in the isolation box she had several droppings . Before I stopped her food , I gave her some applesauce and boiled egg which she attacked with gusto. Some members who responded to my earlier post said that she's most likely normal but I'm beginning to think her crop is slow. Shouldn't it have been nearly flat after 8 hours of nothing but ACV water ? The puzzling thing to me is that she is not acting weak. Does a slow crop cause the chick to be hungry all the time because food isn't moving fast enough through their system ? She is not trying to eat all the time and she naps with the others but I'm still concerned. I just fed all of them a serving of yogurt, applesauce, and mashed up egg yolk and she was right in the middle of the plate with the rest of them. Here are the two photos I posted earlier. Thank you for any information you can give. I appreciate it.
