A good start would be to read this article:

Sour crop is often a symptom of an underlying problem, whether that be ovarian cancer, egg yolk peritonitis (EYP), heart failure, salpingitis, etc. So, unfortunately, if you don't see improvement with the fungistat/yeast treatment recommended in the article, it's possible her body is shutting down regardless. You may be able to treat for the underlying problem afterward, but I have found if they are developing sour crop, they are often in late stages of the condition, so it's oftentimes hard to successfully get them back in good condition.
