I have a 2 yr old RIR hen who is struggling. She has sour crop that will not drain no matter how much it's messaged. I have diligently given her water and oil and while she has passed some stool there was nothing remarkable to note. She has also been limping and pecking at the bottom of her feet. She has a small bumblefoot on both feet although only one seems to be bothering her. I'm not sure how long her crop has been a problem as I just noticed it two days ago. I've soaked her in a warm bath with Epsom salt and baking soda and she's sleeping in a towel on my lap. Should I take care of both feet at once or just the one that pains her? Also she's molting. Poor little girl.
