    Today I noticed what looks like blood on the inside of her crop. Should I be worried?
    Back story...
    My Frizzled Bantam seems to be on the home stretch of her Sour Crop. However, I noticed in the beginning on the treatment she had a scab on her crop and had lost quite a few feathers in that area also. (Photo 2) I sprayed Blu-Kote on the area and continued treatment.

    It looks like a small sore from where she may have had some feathers plucked or rubbed off. Was she broody as well?

    Apply some more Blu-Kote or some triple antibiotic ointment and keep her on clean dry bedding. Hopefully it will heal up quickly.

    Thank you! I don't believe she was broody but I had noticed black feathers in the nesting boxes!
