In the Brooder

My pet four year old hen has been ill for a while now. About a week ago she had yellow, watery diarrhea and she wasn't eating so i brought her inside and discovered she had sour crop. I made her vomit the stuff out (I've done it many times now) and nothing has changed to this day. I have discovered she is losing weight rapidly (she basically feels like a bag of bones) since she doesn't eat much but she sometimes eats bugs when I take her outside, although that is basically the only circumstance where she eats by herself. Now her crop is much smaller but she still refuses to eat, although she is drinking. I made a thread about her before but now I know the problem can't be sour crop so I've made a new one because I'm completely clueless. I can't take her to a vet as there aren't any avian vets anywhere in my area or even hours away from here. Please help my sick hen, I'm afraid she might die of starvation if I can't help her soon.
