    I am going to give my hen some penicillin as a last resort.
    I have been treating her for sour crop since last october and nothing has helped.
    Does anyone know how much penicillin i should give her? I have the 250mg capsules.

    Marlene, I've just seen your post. Penicillin will not help sour crop. If your hen still needs help, PM me and I'll share what I know.
