    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!!
