With that little information it's hard to tell for sure, but it sounds like sour crop. Get all rotting meat out of the crop, irrigate, give casting material, iand see the vet. Vet may suggest antibiotics.

Don't give casting material with sour crop. It needs crop tubing by an experienced hand. And an avian vet immediately.
Too many cooks spoil the broth!!!
