You should keep a camera handy during your surgery in case you find something strange you'd like to share or need to ask questions about. Experiences you can document can often help others facing similar strange situations. Even if you don't post it now you will have it as reference later if someone asks about a similar situation.
Good luck on the exploratory surgery... hope you solve the mystery and your bird does well.
I had hoped someone else had encountered them and tweeted a pic a few days ago. Missy confirmed they were possibly ticks, but I am hoping they are just feather cysts. Here is the link to my original pic and I will let you know how it goes.http://pic.twitter.com/TkWAW7wnpd
OMGoodness, that one on the top really does look like a fat tick, doesn't it?? But, the one on the bottom looks like an ingrown feather, hmmm... Only one way to be sure....

Love them!!! I had an enormous pack of puppy pads leftover from unsuccessful potty training, they're working great for the babies. I have a pack-n-play in the basement too, with chicks in it.

There is a discussion about it and I may have to explain this to him when he is a teenager.
I don't want to confuse him being his adopted father and all. LOL
He (He crows) came from Mcmurray hatchery with four more as extra heaters for the delivery born on 03/01/13.
I don't know what he is, but I don't think he's a Buff Orp.
