Hi everyone, I have a poor hen with sour crop. This is day 5. I noticed it on Day 1, massaged her crop and gave her the night to see if it passed. Day 2 she showed no signs of improvement, I massaged the crop again and added cider vinegar to her water (though I don't think she's drinking). Day 3 I got Ketoconazole and tried her give her that (200mg tabs). I had trouble getting her to take it on Day 3, but Day 4 a friend helped me get her to take the pill as well as some stool softener (this chicken had an impacted crop once before, and the stool softener helped). So here I am, Day 5. Her crop is huge like a water balloon. I don't feel anything solid in it at all. I have been massaging it daily, but it hasn't improved a bit. I plan on giving her the pill again today, but I'm dropping it right into this full crop. I have been hesitant to try to vomit her. I did it to one chicken in the past with success, but since then I have read about so many people aspirating the vomit into the chickens' lungs that I am very hesitant. However, I hate to see this poor girl get worse. She is only just over a year old, and getting visibly weaker by the day. I will cull her if need be, but I will do what I can to try and save her. My questions are this: Should I attempt to empty her crop? If not, does anybody else have anything I might try to help her out? Thanks so much!!!!
