    How old is she? Has she had grit to help grind/digest the food? Could she be impacted or have sour crop?

    I just looked at the photos again - is her crop really swollen or is that some kind of feather ruff?
    In any event, can you give her some thing easier to digest until she gets feeling better?

    I'm hoping the corid treatment cures my Lucy - she has had diarrhea for a month now. I tried worming her with safeguard but that didn't work. I started today with .4ml of liquid corid by mouth.

    She also has pendulous crop, I am hoping this is also an effect of cocci.

    Interesting. My vet told me to give vitamin B while giving Corid, said that the Coccidiosis uses up the vitamin and needs to be replenished. She said it wasn't feeding the Cocci, the Corid is killing that, she just wants me to feed the bird what it needs.

    Wouldn't a sour or impacted crop give the bird diarrhea?

    We put a birdy bra on our girl with the pendulous crop and it made a huge difference!

    @Mike10 , what is the consistency of her poo? Is it diarrhea-like or watery or loose? Or is it formed and solid or semi-solid? It sounds gross, but do you have poo pictures?

    @Garden Peas , you may have to blow it up to see very well but this is what he posted above. I'm still thinking come type of crop infection.

    Hmmm, @KsKingBee , I think we have 3 or 4 different sets of chicken folks with possibly similar issues all chiming in, and I thought that photo was from one of the other ones, not the puffed up bird from @Mike10 ? But I'm with you on there being some kind of crop problem...
