    To me it looks like it's probably just a full crop, which should look like that after they've eaten, but it should be empty in the morning before they start eating again.

    Did you know that different birds have different shaped crops?

    Pretty sure peafowl and chickens are either the second or third from the left, ducks are the one on the left, pigeons are fourth to the right and I have no idea what type of bird has one like the right most.
