    Sounds like she could be egg bound, as for the crop does it smell? Is it full in the morning?

    I'm going to say research sour crop. But you should also check if she's egg bound, it's pretty deadly if not taken care of. "Eggsessive" and "casportpony" are very knowledgeable posters they will be more help( I'm sure they see your thread soon).. But for now search egg bound and sour crop.
    Good luck

    Sorry can't find any articles on sour crop. I know it's a yeast infection and it smell and if it is the problem you will need an anti fungal like nystatin.
