    look at the crop surgery page... that's all I can think of. I've never had experience with crops getting ripped open. Try calling the vet? A bird vet should know how to fix a crop.
    Besides that I have no other suggestions.
    I'm very sorry.
    Best of luck!

    There was a thread around somewhere - where someone had to cut open the crop to remove stuff, and sewed it back up!!!
    I'll start looking for it!

    HANG IN THERE!

    Man, oh Man! Do you think you could sew it closed? It must be the beginning of the season for tragedies. Please somebody help with some sort of emergency advice. Do you have a vet you can call or get to really fast? Don't give up unless and until it's over is my motto. I think I'd try to stitch it closed.
