A squishy crop is a sign of sour crop. Usually a result of impacted crop. It’s when food gets stuck in the crop and then ferments, and has no way out. Try giving lots of water, sugar free yogurt, and massaging the crop downward. Then withhold food for a couple of hours, but give water. If it empties out, great! Keep an eye out because it could happen again. If it is not empty, continue with water and yogurt and massages.

thanks i will try that but it kinda feels like there is no crop does that mean she has not been eating
Hmmmm. A squishy empty crop just means she has not been eating. Give her some poultry nutridrench to help.
I’m sure other members will be along soon to help more.
