We just processed our 1st 6 roosters and found these in one. Are the discolored kidneys? Are they eggs and it was a hen? My husband has processed tons of birds and has never seen them before.

Yeppers!
You can take them out and the Roo stay alive with a little practice, and he'll become a Capon. No more crowing, docile as a hen, and the meat is tender for a rooster, plus you get that great old bird flavor without the toughness. look online for videos of how to caponize a roo. After doing it a time or two, it's pretty easy and totally worth the reward. They even sell caponizing kits online. Good luck!

I think it would be best to have a vet do it tbh. It's extremely painful for the bird without anesthetization
