    If you can see it, may be able to remove with a set of twiser. If not, put a small amount of veg oil in a syringe and give it orally. This should help the food to dislodge.
    Hope this was of help,

    I can't see anything, she was perfectly fine, then she was eating with everyone. Next thing I know she is breathing very heavy and looking like she is chocking. Is it most likely in the trachea? Or in the esophagus?

    Olive oil or vegetable oil down the mouth and massage the crop to see if you can bring it back up or help it pass on down.

    Look for threads on impacted crop, see if that helps you.

    If its in the esophagus the veg oil may work. Got the tip from someone else. Tried it myself awhile back and it worked for me.

    It seem to be in the wind pipe, like she inhaled a small pellet. It was very sudden on set different than something in the crop.
