    I have a hen recovering from sour crop- her crop seems fine now but her poop is still very green and watery and her appetite is extremely low still (I have been force feeding her) and every time she even thinks about eating or drinking on her own she starts snapping her beak in a way that would be normal except that it sounds like there is something very sticky in her mouth- I can't see anything in there... Does anyone know what the sticky sound might mean? Is there something keeping her from wanting to eat?
