    I have a 3-4 year old BR Tom, I thought something was caught in his throat as a stick like looking shape was seen in the wattle about 3 inches down from his chin. I opened his mouth and moved the mystery item around and out popped his tongue???????????? However it stayed out for a bit, but is now back where it was? What should I do, he seems other wise fine and can still run like the wind from me......

    I think he's fine. He just wants to see what he can do with his tongue. [​IMG]
