Okay, just read that applying pressure to crop can make the water come out? But she was also spitttting a little when I was not holding her crop, I think..
She is in the bathroom in a towel with the shower on, it's getting really steamy.
I heated up a towel in the microwave and wrapped it around the other on her.
Great! The warm water ran out! I took the towels off and I'm blow drying her. It's still pretty warm in there. She's making noise, looking around, and raising the feathers on her back.

I put her in a box covered by a towel and turned the lights off. I just checked on her and the water I gave her is almost out while there is a pile of wet shavings in the opposite corner.

I gave her another bath, then towel dried her and put her in a box covered by a towel in the bathroom with a heat fan. When I woke up she was out of the box, looking a bit better. There is a green, pinkish brown/beige and white diareaha on the floor. I gave her some more water.
