Seeking opinions regarding 5 y.o. hen
I brought our sick hen, Judi Dench, inside when we noticed her just sitting around outside, despite the 11 degree temps! She has had water diarrhea for an undetermined amount of time. I didn't notice her crop the first day but did notice that now it is squishy. I have Terramycin to give her, but not sure if I should try emptying her crop (I know the dangers) as well? She has been eating yogurt, some of her pellets, and some scratch (trying to get calories into her). Now she is just sitting around with her eyes closed. :-( So, I guess my question is whether I should worry about her crop or just try to get the abx into her?
Thanks for any advice,
