    Anyone ever seen this before, almost looks like he pooped out his intestine, still acting normal otherwise……[​IMG]

    Good news, with these negative New England temps it ended up being a giant frozen accumulation of poop frozen to the feathers around his vent

    That's kind of what I was thinking it was. It's great that it was not anything serious. You might want to trim feathers around the vent to prevent a buildup of droppings. It tends to happen if they have diarrhea, and then it can cake up.
