Go and pick her up and feel her crop,  is it all squishy  :?:  and dose she need a mouth wash  :?: :lol:

If the answer is yes to both, then she could have sour crop  :!:

if the seed gets damp air on it it can produce  mould  and this will upset the birds digestion .also the mash can do the same it is important not to let damp get to it . sounds like its sour crop to me .dont feed her for a couple days until its passed through you can expel it from her mouth but for the panic the bird suffers i would just starve her . feeding greens only to get the mush through her system .
