    Could be the meds...
    Or she could have sour crop.

    Is her crop distended, or feel mushy instead of gravely after eating?

    Try this... take about 1/4 cup crumbles, and mix in a tablespoon of natural plain yogurt, and a tablespoon of finely grated carrot. The fiber is good, and the yogurt cultures will help. Feed this in the morning on an empty crop for about 3 days and see if it helps. [​IMG]
