is it normal for a very young very small wild eagle to have a golf ball size crop

Am watching a wild bird cam of White-bellied Sea Eagles. There are two hatchlings, and one is VERY small compared to other although they were hatched within 24 hours of each other.  Their food is plentiful and they've had crops that were noticebly full, but the much smaller eagle's has become golf ball-sized.

The crop as you know if the organ where food is stored. The crop can grow to the size of a golf ball. Since they are wild, there's not much you can do if there is a problem although you can call a wildlife preservation group for more information.
