    My roo has a not or lump about half way from his crop to his head. Is this his crower or is it not supposed to be there?

    Is it possibly the curve of his neck?

    No it is not a curve in his neck. It is a lump the size of a golf ball. I didn't know if a roos crower was like a man's adams Apple.

    Did you open his mouth to see if you can see some thing in there?

    No I did not. It is half way down so I bet I can't see that far down.

    This is his poop under where he roosted last night. The little spots that look black are dark green.
