    Hi all. Found what I would call a hernia yesterday on my BO roo. It is a bulging spot just belo and to the right of his vent. It is soft and squishy. You can depress it in and it just kind of slowly fills back up and pokes back out. Doesn't seem to be tender or both him. The skin around it doesn't seem to be inflamed. It feels just like an umbilical hernia in a child would. I only noticed it as I was bathing roo for show perp. It's probably between quarter and half dollar size in circumference. I've looked on here and see plenty of hen hernias. Anyone have roo with one? Any future problems like with hens?
