I thought my chicken had a tumor, but both of them have it. Is that there gulet?
i believe its called a crop... my chicks get the same bump after they have eaten.
does it stay the same size always or does it change after they eat?
I think it stays the same size. So what is a crop? And where is there gulet?
The crop will change in size. Its bigger after they eat, and will deflate a bit as it digests.
As for what it technically does...im not real sure <grin>
When I first noticied with on my first peepers, I thought I had deformed chickens LOL They were lopsided I soon learned that it was a sign of a very full baby.
The crop holds food.
As for the gulet, I don't know. Did you mean pullet?
I guess gullet, with two L's, is another name for the esophagus.
Gullet is another name for the esophagus.
Darn, too slow.
Doesn't anyone say "craw" anymore??
