My chicken has a very doughy crop and enlarged this morning. Very listless. Drinking but not eating and off by herself. Getting more listless by the hour. Googled it and got a million different remedies. Please help as soon as possible. Thank you. I am frantic.

So sorry about your girl! I don't know anything about it but I hope someone who knows what to do will respond!

For the night, isolate her somewhere away from everyone else and do not put food or water in the enclosure. Check the crop again in the am.... if it’s still large and mushy then you are dealing with impacted crop, which is what causes sour crop. If it is impacted, the first step to preventing sour crop is to stop all eating completely - it won’t leave the crop or digest, and will ferment and add to the yeast infection candida (aka sour crop). Don’t worry, chickens can go several days without eating.
