Hello all. I was investigating one of my girls backsides as it was caked in poop. Once we cleaned her up and cut back the dirty feathers we realized she has 2 cloacas! Has anyone ever encountered something like this? If so, who can I speak with to learn more about this? I have a picture if you are interested in seeing it.

It’s hard to tell. When I blew lightly on them with both contracted. I have emailed the university of Guelph to see if they can any information on the topic.

I found her in a laying box this morning so I will infer that she can lay.
I was thinking of putting a camera in the box to see if it can capture anything.
I have done a lot of googling and there has been only one other case in recent history.
We are now calling her double-double (all you Canadians out there will get that reference)
