I don't post very often on the site as I don't really have the experience to give advice. I do look on here from time to time, especially when my chook is poorly, which was this week. Couldn't work out what it was until I read Allister's thread - sour crop. I immediately made the poor old girl sick and kept an eye on her. It really was touch and go, she wasn't eating or drinking and I felt terrible making her sick and then turning round and trying to get some food and water down her throat!! She was so weak that I really thought I was going to lose her. Following your advice I went out and bought some Daktarin which I gave to her 3 times a day (obviously not telling the chemist it was for a chicken). Today I opened up her coop dreading having to go through it all again - but hurrah her crop is back to normal and she's running round the garden and eating and drinking!!!! I will continue to give her the Daktarin for a few days.
What I really wanted to say was "THANK YOU" to everyone who asks for help to those who fantastically give it - I'm sure it saved my girl!!!
Have a good weekened xxxx
