    Since you mention a large toy marble, and that he acts very sick, might be good to get him to an avian vet asap.
    Good luck with your rooster.

    Thanks ! Now I can treat his crop. Just one more thing is there way to get the marble toy out of his crop?

    Since a large marble is not digestible, it may not leave the crop and it certainly would not get past his gizzard.
    If it cannot pass, my concern is starvation. Crop surgery is warranted here.
