    The problem is that where the wattles are to be growing...it is swollen...should I cull it or is there something I can do to help it.

    Could it just be a full crop??? Those things gorge themselves.

    No it is right under the lower part of its beak.

    Don't do anything. Definitely DON'T cut it. If it appears to be suffering or dying, cull the bird, but til then, leave it alone.

    No signs of suffering, I was just worried it was something to be concerned about. These are my first meaties....

    Again, a picture would really help. There's not much anyone can do with a one line verbal description. Is this all your birds or just one? If just one and you can't snap a photo, just be safe and cull it.
