Annette, Thats not crop burn, if you are talking about the
redness near the babys throat area? The crop is full, you can
see that, and there are no signs of burning. Myself, I raise
cockatiels, and I've never seen a throat looking like that.
Pictures of course sometimes you can't tell. It does look
swollen and red to me, which is not normal. Your correct, the
baby should be seen by a vet. Wish I could help more, but as I
said, never seen that in a baby's throat before.
I don't think it is from feeding to fast , as my little babies
used to be piggy's and gulp their food fast. Try to talk her
into seeing a vet!!
