I have a hen that keeps on closing her eyes and it's the already daytime .She also has a expanded crop. I found her in the run just standing there acting sleepy. she can walk but she just wont move a whole lot. I have her isolated for now with feed and water mixed with some apple cider vinegar. Is she ok ? any help will be appreciated.

If her crop is full already she may have sour crop or if it is hard, impacted crop. Get some plain yogurt and give her some. The ACV is good, and can be put in the water 1/2 ounce per gallon. Check her stools--coccidiosis can make them droopy and feeling poorly, and they will have diarrhea or sometimes blood in the stools. Crop problems can happen at the same time.
