    I'm so sorry. I posted in someone else's thread and there seems to be a lot of confusion...especially since there wasn't a profile picture. I've changed my picture now. That's Mabel in her chicken diaper on my desk :)

    Susie is still alive but is not eating or drinking. I have taken 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar to 1/2 gallon of water and I am giving her small doses. In addition, I am following through with the medication the vet provided. I will be calling the vet in the morning to find out about draining her crop. Oh...and Susie has poohed twice today so that's got to be good...right?

    Thank you all very much for all the feedback.

    Susie has come back from the dead! Today she's making chicken sounds, moving about and drinking water on her own!!! I'm totally amazed! I thought for sure she was a goner. I think it was the ACV that did it. Thanks everyone for all your help!
