How would I know if my chicks have sour crop? Whenever I check them (all 4 of them) their crops are always full. This worries me that they aren't emptying at all. Also the older chicks (almost a week old) have dark seeds in the crop. Is that normal? The oldest two don't look as pink, they are still pink but starting to get feathers and they don't look as pink as the younger birds but they are growing like weeds! Any help would be appreciated.

Its pretty rare for a parent fed baby to get sour crop. It normally comes with hand raising.

Chicks will only get sour crop if they are fed sour food, so keep the food and water fresh and all will be fine :yes:
