It sould be helpful to have a few more details. When chickens suffer from certain illnesses, the crop may slow down due to intestinal disease or fullness in the abdomen by reproductive disease putting pressure on the organs.

We need to find out if her crop problem is due to a crop impaction, sour crop, or another condition in the body.

What are you feeding, how old, has she been laying eggs recently, and if the crop feels full and hard, doughy, or puffy, especially early in the morning.
