I recently received a batch of baby chicks and at about four days old, one of them started to smell like sour milk. I felt it’s crop and it was squishy and gurgled. It did feel like a little water balloon. I massaged it gently and the next day it was still there. I recently started giving him little doses of Monistat to help and the smell isn’t as strong. He’s definitely smaller then all of the other chicks and I can feel his bones. I’ve noticed he doesn’t eat much and believe it’s because of his crop. At one point when I was massaging it, it almost felt like a tiny wood chip was in there. I don’t feel it anymore but he still has that weird smell. I don’t know what to do because he can’t keep going on too much longer as he is just about all bones.. I don’t want to give up on the little guy either. What do I do?!? Please help me!
