Well,
Last week one of my roosters had to get a giant glob of..something..removed from his throat. $80 later- it's back. What IS this?? It's not mushy, and doesn't want to "squish". It's almost spongy. I got a little bit out...take a look.

EDIT:
I'm pretty sure it's canker, and he didn't have any other lesions, sores, or mucous anywhere, just this crud. Can anyone suggest a treatment?? Please help me..

It reminds me of wet fowlpox also. If you type that in the search engine there is A LOT of helpful information on here. One thing I recall is Listerine... but don't quote me on that.

I seem to recall that it is treatable so definitely check it out. So sorry

I looked up some info on fowlpox..

He doesn't have mucous anywhere or lesions, or pox anywhere. Just that crud in his throat.

EDIT:
I looked up canker pictures, and that's exactly what it is...now to find a treatment..

It's highly contagiou and hard to treat. If he is not worth alot of money, I would put him down.

If you want to try to save him, contact Peter Brown at First State.
