Hi I'm new to the forum(more like a stalker) but now I have an issue and search as I may I haven't come up with an answer so here I am. I spend about an hour every evening with my 6 red sex link hens. They started laying about 3 weeks ago and I've had an assortment of eggs, lg dbl yolks, shell-less, soft shell, teenie tiny, etc. They seem to becoming more regular as I read they would do. Tonight I gave the girls an apple to chase around and my one hen wasn't interested (red flag) so I offered her a taste, no deal. I removed her from the coop and while holding her she had fluid coming out of her mouth and back end. As I was walking away with her she dropped a soft shell egg (we collected 6 eggs already today) and her vent was wet. I put her in a cage and went into the house to look on this forum and when I went back out she had dropped a shell-less egg. I took her out of the cage and fluid was once again coming from her mouth so I turned her upside down and massaged her crop and what came out it smelled and looked like vomit. I did this a couple of times and returned her to the coop. I just checked on her and she's not roosting but on the floor of the coop house. Her comb is still red, her eyes are good. Is this one issue of a sour crop or two different issues? Thanks so much for your help!!!
