    I'm certainly no expert but I like to guess for the heck of it and it helps your post show up more so you can get proper help. Perhaps sour crop, you can usually get an idea by opening the beak and taking a whiff, should be an offensive odor. That's what I've heard and picked up at least, these guys should know though @casportpony @Wickedchicken6 @XanderWiFi

    My sympathies for your hen, poor thing

    I'm sorry it is under such circumstances.:hugs

    I admit that I haven't had experience with this type of situation. You will get more appropriate responses for your specific situation from those with experience if you post a thread under the emergency/disease/injury/cures section of the forum. The link to bring you there is below.
