Has anyone else been having sour crop issues with their birds on this?

I haven't used NRM feed for many many years so don't know.

Once you have a chook with sour crop it's probably best to empty it out by holding her by her legs and gently massaging the crop content toward her beak. Once empty you could give her some apple cider vinegar - about a tea spoon full, diluted with a bit of water 3 times per day for 2 or 3 days. Sour crop is a bacterial imbalance and giving a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar per litre of drinking water on a permanent basis might be able to prevent it from recurring.

Have you got more than 1 chook with sour crop? If it's just one she may have a weakness in her immune system.
