Unsure what is wrong?

Hi, I’m after some advice.

16 week Silkie bantam hen.

Yesterday she was quite lethargic, squishy crop, smelly breath, burping. I assumed sour crop, and thought I’d see how she was on the morning. She seemed better this morning, however she won’t eat any pellets (only some plain yogurt). Her crop is still squishy )but I think this is cause it’s full of water and yogurt and not real food, but there is no smell. Her poo is normal.

She’s now just standing around hunched with her neck in. She’s not walking around, but is preening and also pecking the little ones if they come near.

Any ideas?
