No she is not, she is 20weeks old and hasn’t started even showing signs of being ready to lay.
Have you looked inside her beak to see if she has anything lodged in her throat since she is scraping the beak and has a cough/sneeze bock.
Is she pooping?
I would gently insert a gloved, lubricated finger about 1-2" inside the vent just to make sure she doesn't have an egg stuck.
Do what you can to keep her hydrated and let us know if you see or feel anything.
Thank you so much for the reply! I have not looked in her beak/throat, what is the best way to do that? I will feel around for an egg to see if it is stuck. Thanks again
This has good directions on how exactly to check for a stuck egg:

I am trying to open her beak but having trouble I don’t know how to keep it open.
She seems to be getting stronger, she was just standing up and preening herself. I haven’t been able to get a good look in her mouth and I’m just preparing to do the egg check. I’ll keep you posted
Try not to stress her - do you have someone who can help you look inside the beak?
If she is not coughing/wiping the beak anymore, then you may want to observe her, if she is still doing that, then get a look.
I know this is about giving medications - but the photos show how to hold a bird to get their beak open.
I tried to do the vent check but I couldn’t, I’m sorry. Her vent is super small and she just wasn’t letting my finger go in. I feel horrible right now. I don’t have anyone to help me with the beak at the moment, I’m so stuck and it’s really frustrating. I’m trying everything I can but it’s hard. Gee now I’m crying, I’m sorry. Thanks for all of your help so far you guys
Maybe just let her rest in a dark, quiet spot and check her in the morning.
Also check her crop in the morning before you give her anything to eat and make sure it’s flat and empty.
Hang in there!
