xx Crop Feeding
« Thread started on: Apr 3rd, 2007, 04:16am »

Here are some links which will help you with information on cropfeeding (most with handy illustrations ) and though not specifically "chicken" specific the information is equally applicable:
Brian A. Evans, DVM
"...Gavage feeding in avian species, otherwise
known as tube feeding, is a procedure that is
necessary to provide nutrition for anorectic
birds or to deliver medications to ill birds or
those being used in drug trials. In the event of
crop stasis or ingestion of a toxin, passage of a
gavage tube into the crop is necessary so that
material can be removed from the crop. The
gavage feeding method is also used to deliver
medications that are not readily consumed
by birds...." (describes the proper technique for tube feeding)
(Use of the Crop Needle / Vetafarm)
(The above link is a step by step tutorial, > see the sub-headings on the left)
