Has been going on for 4 to 5 days and is getting worse. Vet ruled out parasites and crop problem via swabs and microscope inspection. We're at a loss about what it could be now.

Sorry that your chicken is so unwell. Could it be a blockage further down the digestive system? Is the chicken eating at all, or producing any droppings?

I think that's a good possibility, but it's Saturday evening now and I'd probably have to get an x-ray or something. It maybe too late anyway as she's been laying on her side all afternoon. She's eaten very little, only when we encourage her to, and she did poop but not much. I figured that was because she didn't eat much. At least she is in a comfortable place now. Thanks for your support.
