    okay so our chicken has sour crop and she got it by eating hay, and a lot of it. It's been a week since we started treating her for it because we didn't know what it was before. Today when we were emptying her out a giant chunk of hay.started coming out. It wasn't coming out so i had to pull it out. I really big chunk of hay came out and now her crop is completely empty but she is making gurgling sounds and occasionally crowing very loud. it's like there is some hay in her throat or lungs or something. Please help she is very weak I don't know how to approach this. [​IMG] I will try to insert a picture of the hay that came out of her.

    the hay is like 8 inches long and that is pretty much what was in her crop.

    Have you checked the learning center here? I'd try to give her some yogurt, then maybe some scrambled egg. Perhaps just the removal of that load could have exhausted her!! Looks so gross! Lol. :barnie
