    Sorry I don't understand the question.[​IMG]

    Are you referring to the poop? - it's normal.

    I'm guessing at your question so I hope my answers may have helped. Otherwise would you please specify the question? [​IMG]

    The tom has a scar on his dewlap, and the top of his head is swollen... Wish I got better pictures

    The scar "could" be a pecking wound. I had that happen to one of my hens this year that freaked me out until I figured out what it was. My tom latched on and was dragging her around causing an ugly looking wound. I really can't tell from the picture, it's just a guess.

    Sorry but I don't know what could cause a swollen head either other than a possible sinus issue. Is he showing any other symptoms physically, odd behavior?

    No none that I've noticed, but I'll keep a lookout
