    I had a hen picked at by another hen about two weeks ago. The injured hen has never been herself since then, but injuries are fine. Tonight I when I was checking on her I found that her crop is like a water balloon. I vomitted her and attempted to feed her some plain yogurt and some bread soaked in olive oil, but was not able to get much in her. I always put ACV in their water. Should I keep trying this for a few days or should I get some monistat for fer?

    I have been dealing with sour crop for 3 months now, with no joy. I tried all the home remedies first and only recently started with the fungal meds, but i think i may have left it too late.
    I would start her on the anti fungal meds asap if you can.

    Look at the monistat link I posted. I might try that tomorrow with my girl. She is like a water balloon, but there is not blockage in her. The last girl I vomited died, so I am scared to do that. I gave her a bit of olive oil, and I saw her eating so hopefully tomorrow she will be better. If not, I will try the monistat.

    Sorry for my ignorance, i am in the uk and have not heard of monistat. Can you be a bit clearer and point me to what it is?
    Thank you.

    My girl is still like a water balloon but I cant seem to get her to regurgitate. Maybe I am doing it wrong. She is all puffed out too.. she was eating earlier... sigh... this is so frustrating as I just seem to be battling illness all the time with these girls!! I just got one on panacur for gapeworm, and now after I put her back in I have a crop issue. The last girl to have this lost all her feathers and died... I am so scared to lose my baby.
