    Sorry I thought that was some sort of colloquialism for the other end. Ok , so have you felt her crop, is it mushy? Is there an odour on her breath? Could be impacted crop.

    If she is still pooping it may not be impacted crop. Can you look down her beak, for any obstruction ? If you think it could be egg bound, you could sit her in a warm bath and gently massage from under the wings towards the vent.
