Worms don't cause sour crop - sour crop is caused by food getting stuck in the crop and then starting to rot. What symptoms is she having?

How old is she? If she is a few weeks old, lethargic, not eating, and having diarrhea, the problem might be coccidiosis. That can be treated with Corid (amprollium) found at your local feed store. Chicks may have distended crops from eating, and any massage can cause them to vomit which may lead to choking. Is she eating or drinking? I would encourage her to drink water, and electrolytes would be good until you get Corid as soon as possible. Crops can become slow to empty with coccidiosis or other illnesses.

I too was thinking possible coccidiosis based on the symptoms, which is why I asked about blood in the poop. You might want to get her started on Corid just in case, it can't hurt.

Corid is a medication used to treat coccidiosis, basically a brand name of amprolium.
