    Sounds like impacted crop or sour crop! Do a search on those words--he needs help right away. Don't feed him anymore right now. I would separate him from food and water for awhile, drip a couple squirts of olov oil down his throat, massage his crop in a downward stroke--like you are trying to empty it and do this every 30 minutes to an hour until his crop is completely cleared. If it's sour crop, Apple Cider Vinegar down the throat I believe helps with that, but do your research! Good luck!​
