Poor thing. It could be internal laying, peritonitis or ascites.
I'm glad to crop is getting better.
You may want to see if she will take some crumbles or layer feed made into a wet mash (mix with warm water). Wet poultry food is generally easy to digest.
You could also offer her some vitamins/electrolytes in her water. If it is internal laying, you may want to take her back to the vet, sometimes they can drain the belly which may ease her discomfort for a period of time.
