I have just moved some bantam hens into an area where they have access to the bantam run, havent been out for almost 6 months! The run was looking very bare and rather nasty so I laid down some hay that I had lying around. Now I see that my dear little Sonnet has obviously gorged herself on the lovely goodies and her crop is really big, looks like it touches the ground whenever she pecks at the ground. I have heard of this happening but (who knows why?) thought it wouldn't happen to my chickens... The crop is soft, seems to cause discomfort when I palpated it earlier. She is eating and drinking but seems a bit listless - I initially thought she was broody because she was hanging out on the nest yesterday... I have not witnessed her pooping this afternoon, but haven't been able to hang out watching her. Will check tomorrow morning... What do I do? Should I isolate her? She looks a bit uncomfortable and when my DD picked her up clear liquid came up out of her beak, presumably due to her crop being too full...THere is no bad smell with the fluid that came up. HOw do I treat this? Should I take her off food and just give her liquids for a while? I have a cage (broody jail) that I guess I could put her in (I have a broody hen in there right now and she won't be done for another few days...) Anyway, HELP. THis pullet is almost a year old, they are housed on shavings in the coop, and everyone is on a gamebird breeder/ layer feed at the moment. I put grit in their feed but don't yet have it in a separate container for free access, need to do that.
