    There a weird Pimple like thing on my rooster back. It doesn't seems to hurt him when i touch it and I also squeezed it (probably bad idea) but when i did it seemed like watery blood came out. I tried to get a picture of it but the picture was really blurry. Also he seems to act normal. What could it be. If needed I will try to get a better picture of it.

    So its not anything bad? Also it is at the base of the tale but it doesn't look like that.

    I call it the preen gland. All chickens have one, not just roosters. It's nothing bad.[​IMG]
