    Sour crop?????

    Ok today i notice that when my female comes out to after fedding she has it dribbled down hernack. And has stuff that looks like poop (but i dont know if it is or not) Stuck to her beek and her feathers under her lower beek. I was wondering if it was sour crop or if she is trying to clean out the nesting box.:| :| :| :| :|

    Sour Crop whould be when food in a chicks crop does not digest, and stays in there, and rots. It can kill the chick. The crop often looks enlarged and very swollen. If you ever think one of your birds has tht, get them to the vet ASAP.

    No, it sounds like she is cleaning the nest. As long as she cleans all of it off herself, it should be fine . If she is letting herself stay dirty, then there is casue for major concern.
