    smell in her beak area while gently pressing on the crop, you can smell if things are better/getting better.

    it's usually best to take all food/water away for at least 12 hours, after 12 hours only give clear water (no additives just water), then return feed after 24 hours (if the crop emptied). feed a mix of boiled eggs and add in a little plain yogurt.
