In the Brooder
- Jun 23, 2011
Hi everyone. Well basically 6 days ago I noticed my little orpington open her mouth to breathe. She then went outside and hunched over away from others. I seperate her and noticed she couldn't really eat, she was trying bit then sort of gagging or jerking. I thought she may have either gape so I gave her flubenvet, poss a respiratory infection so she was on baytril or maybe coccisidiosis so I treated for that. She started eating a bit but yest I watched her and she was Sat jerking again. I stumbled over sour crop on the internet as I felt her crop was large and squidgy. I made her sick but it did not smell. I gave her some love yog and mixed some crushed layers pellets and yog together and she ate it straight away. I did the same this morn as it was large again and put some garlic in. Do you think I'm doing correct things and if its sour crop as no smell? How long should I did this for. Any help would be much appreciated.
