Our girl, Lizzie, that I thought was struggling with the low temperatures actually has impacted or sour crop. When bringing her inside to check her over some liquid came out of her, so I turned her over and a massive amount of (very smelly) dark brown liquid came out. I did this a few more times for a few seconds each and continued getting a horrible liquid (with pieces of grass which seems impossible at this time of year) Anyway now I'm reading she could have aspirated, so maybe I should not have done this, but at the moment she seems OK, although she has not settled into her crate-she is standing and is unbalanced. She also has one very swollen foot which seems odd to me. I've not given her food or water. Should I wait a few hours before offering water? I've been massaging her crop every 15 minutes and hoping to keep things moving. I read the post here about coconut oil and if that fails dulcolax. Does anyone know how much dulcolax to give a large hen (probably 5 lbs) and how often? Thanks to everyone for the support I've had here for the last few years.
