    Hi,
    I have a small hen that has sour crop. She's about a year old. What can I do to help remedy the problem?

    Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    There are several thread here on sour crop. Try doing a search and see what you can find. If there is a yeast or bacterial infection then she will need the appropriate medicine as well as massage, etc to encourage the crop to empty.

    I hope your hen feels better soon!

    Thanks for getting back to me. She seems to be doing better already. I've been massaging her crop and have given her some yogurt and have started putting apple cider vinegar in their water.

    Thanks again,
    Kim
