I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this question. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. I'm going to assume that Thelma is a Rhode Island Red hen. If so, please see Dr. Petrik's synopsis of sour/impacted crop here: http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2012/04/answers-from-chicken-vet-on-impacted.html Please note that once the crop is evacuated as he described, medications aren't usually necessary. I prefer to lavage the crop with diluted chlorhexidine (as per the label on the chlorhexidine product) after evacuation but that may be overkill. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
