    Aren't chewing their food! They're just swallowing their scratch whole.
    It seems to be getting stuck in their necks.
    The area just above the breast, and below the chin, is rather swollen, and it feels like there might even be rocks or gravel in there.
    Should I cut the area open to relieve pressure?

    I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight I'm so worried.

    What in the name of Bob Marley should I do???

    I just grabbed my rooster, held him down, and pried open his beak.
    For the love of God! Someone stole his teeth. He has none, not a single tooth!

    I better check my hens.
