    Is it to the right side up near the throat? If so I think that's the crop (where their food goes).

    First time I noticed a full crop on my banty I freaked!
    I'd always thought the crop would be centered and not really noticeable.
    If it goes down over a period of time, that's all it was. The crop should refill and empty a couple times a day, I think.
