I have 23 chickens, about 7 of them have some form of sour crop or vent gleet. I have treated these hens twice with Monistat which didn't seem to do anything. They have a squishy crop at night and poopy butts. Anyone have this issue in such great numbers? I am not comfortable making them manually vomit, I feel like aspirating would be a terrible way to go and prefer to cull humanely if the need arises. My chickens get an electrolyte/probiotic mix free choice in their water once a week and have access to chicken grit as well as oyster shell crumbles and get fresh clean water in multiple Waters every day. What is causing this. How do I help them heal?? My poor girls.
