Hello,
It looks like sour crop to me.
Isloate her and keep her without food and water for at leats 12 hours.
Give gentle massage to her crop and encourage her to walk.
If the problem doesn't resolves,then try draining her crop.

Where is she swollen? If it is in the lower belly, between the legs, that may be a sign of water belly (ascites) where fluid collects in the abdomen during heart or liver disease, and reproductive disorders or cancer. How does her crop feel? Does it empty overnight?
She is swollen between the legs.
We know it is no ascites. She only eats little bits of food so her crop is mostly empty and it's kinda squishy
