What is the name of the part under the rooster's beak?
That dangley red thing hanging from under the chickens beak is call a wattle. It is the same material as the comb on the top of its head. Combs and wattles are attractive to other chickens of the same species and they also serve as little radiators to reduce heat in the chickens body. Blood gets closer to the surface of the skin in the wattle and comb and therefore cools as it passes through.

trim their feet???? hmmmm-i am assuming u mean SPURS? as marcy said u dont! if u have other roosters ur going to need them to have their spurs so when they do their " i am the man" routine each has a fair chance. their scratching the ground should suffice. also remember spurs tell u the age of the r…ooster :) itd be like dying ur gray hair-cant cover up Honor :)\n. \n Do Not Trim Rooser's Feet \n. \n. \nGood luck! Rooster's feet shouldn't be trimmed. That's usually what gravel in their pen will do. They will often go around mashing their nails into the gravel. I'd leave well enough alone unless you want a fight to the death. My bets on the rooster! LOL\n. \nMarcy (MORE)
What is the name of a crow sized blue bird that looks like a blue jay with an extremely long black tail white under belly and black beak and feet?
Could be a pied crow, a native to Africa. It's black feathers are iridescent, and can appear blue if the light is right. Look at a picture by following the link.
This must be done very carefully otherwise you can damage or even kill the rooster from infection. Dog nail trimmers can be used to cut the last quarter 1/4 of the spur being careful not to cut the blood vessel that feeds the nail/spur. If you cut too close it will bleed and you should apply pressur…e until it stops or apply a silver nitrate stick to the wound to help it stop bleeding. (MORE)
There are a few different shapes of chicken comb, named mostly for their shape such as the - single, pea, walnut, buttercup, rose,strawberry, V-shaped, cushion,
Answer . All male birds testes are located inside the body along the spine, females have ovaries near the spine as well in the same place.
yes depending on the temperature or how well the rooster feels it can change from bright red, whiteish, purplish, yellowish
you have the rack and pinion, also known as the steering gear, and you have inner and outer tie rods on each side, and you also have the power steering pump and hoses
Rooster have "combs" on top of their heads and "wattles" that hang under their beak.
if its is red and warm and feels just like the comb on top of the head then that is its wattle
Roosters are subject to the pecking order as well as hens. The boss hen often continues to try and put the rooster in his place and once she starts the other hens will try to put the run on him also. Most roosters only take this for awhile until they get tired of the fun, then the hens can only take… a shot at him when he is busy looking the other way. Young roosters often lose feathers when there is too much light on at night while roosting, the hens peck at his tail to get him to move away and he will lose a few feathers as a result. (MORE)
You only need to trim your rooster's spurs for a few reasons: * Your rooster is aggressive and uses his spurs to attack people, other chickens, or other animals * You don't desire for your rooster to have large spurs * Your rooster's spurs have grown so long that it makes it difficult for hi…m to walk * Your rooster's spurs have grown to a point that they are injuring hens while mating * Your rooster has a cracked or otherwise damaged spur and you are worried about infection There are many ways to trim a rooster's spur. Keep in mind that spurs, like the claws of a dog or cat ( or your chicken! ) have quicks, which means that if you cut the spur too far at once, it may bleed. I have found that filing my rooster's spurs or nails, and using the dust from filing to press on a quick helps stop the bleeding. I usually use nail clippers for a dog to trim my chicken's claws and spurs. However, one method I have heard for annually removing a rooster's spurs is a "hot potato" method where you put a potato in a microwave for about 8-10 minutes, then slice it in half and stick the potato on the spur right up to the shank. Leave it for a couple of minutes, and the heat and moisture should loosen the spur shaft. Take pliers and pinch gently on the base of the spur near the shank and gently twist back and forth until the spur releases, then slide it off, and underneath is the soft "quick" of the spur. Between a few days and a few weeks, this will harden up, and you will have a small spur once again! (MORE)
The roosters crest is called a Comb. Combs com in several shapes and each has a different name. Pea comb, single, double or rose.
The egg tooth is the structure that develops on the upper mandible, near the tip of the beak, in a chick before it hatches. The neck muscles push the egg tooth against the shell to crack it open.
Absolutely different if not kept in a cage. Roosters will usually look after a group of hens watching for predators. That's why they are quite aggressive and try to stand between you and the hens. They actually eat very little compared to hens. The rooster will try to mate with each hen once a day…. On the contrary, hens pay little attention to their surroundings, concentrated in finding something to eat. Hens scratch the ground to recognize living organisms like earthworms using their eyesight. Hens usually move in group or in pairs. When satisfied, hens will "bathe" in dry earth to get rid of parasites. Of course, behavior changes when they tend their chicks. During incubation, hens become aggressive too! (MORE)
normal in females. if its a male, they have an diesease. see an avian vet.
Tasmania is Australia's Island State and is also known as the "Apple Isle".. Tasmania - Capital is Hobart - (30-Jun-2007 - Tas Pop 493,400 - Hobart Pop 394,700).. Tasmania has a land area of 67,800 sq km.
Skin. This area in most breeds does not grow feathers. The comb is both a sexual attractant and a cooling feature. Chickens do not sweat, the blood circulates close to the surface of both the comb and wattles and is cooled. Breeds such as Silkies and polish hens have very fine feathers in this area …but still get cooling from this area because the feathering is so fine as to resemble hair. (MORE)
A kiwi's beak may simply be referred to as a beak or a bill .
That featherless flap of red skin hanging down from a chickens beak is called a WATTLE. Most chickens, male or female have wattles and combs. Combs are the red featherless skin that grows from the top of their heads. Some breeds do not have them, or at least have noticeable one's. Wattles and comb…s, besides being attractive to the opposite gender of each breed are mostly useful for cooling the bird during hot weather. Chickens do not sweat, they pant, they become less active, dig depressions in the dust/cool earth and they allow air to pass over the combs and wattles to help cool themselves down. Think of them as little radiators, releasing heat. (MORE)
\nThe word "under" is a preposition - it indicates position in relation to another thing, for example:\n. \n"The cat was under the chair."
A good healthy rooster can service about 15/20 hens per day. He may try to mount more times than this but the actual completion of the mating will not happen on every attempt.
"all boats" have a draft, the part beneath the water. The part above is the freeboard. The part in the water is the Hull.
I don't think they've decided that yet. They are still making New Moon after all.
Pecking is often seen in chickens; the one doing the pecking is saying "I'm the boss over you"; every chicken flock will have an established "pecking order" with the strongest that the top and the weakest at the bottom.
You're probably referring to the gallbladder. The gallbladder sits under the liver and produces/stores extra bile, it is an unessential organ of the body and can be removed without consequences.
It does not effect the fertility of the rooster however because he is putting much of his energy into growing new feathers he may not be as active with his hens for a few weeks.
Yes, of course you can. The comb is actually very tough and will not break. It feel soft and rubbery and usually warm to the touch. The comb is used to cool the bird as the blood flow comes very close to the surface of the comb and wattle.
If we are talking about lever action rifles?Then the tube under the barrel is the magazine tube.
Does a small song bird who was attacked by another bird who lost his upper part of the beak will eventulley grow his beak at the moment hand feeding it?
If the bird seems to be surviving well on its own, able to eat and fly, then you should leave it alone. However, if the bird seems unhealthy unable to fend for itself, you must contact a veterinarian or wildlife rehabilitation center in your area immediately. They will give you instructions on what …you should do to help it and, if needed, have you drop the bird off at their clinic for further inspection. Good luck. :) (MORE)
The flap is called a waddle. It helps to cool the bird by redirecting blood flow to the skin. hope that helps :)
No, actually. A rooster's testicle is actually INSIDE his bodycavity, unlike mammals. But being inside his body cavity does notmake him infertile, no. Birds have the kind of sperm that grow andthrive from being inside the body cavity, unlike mammals where ifthe testes were inside their body cavity, …this would render theminfertile. (MORE)
Short-beaked echidnas are found throughout most of Australia, and are highly adaptable to a wide range of environments, which has been one of the reasons why they are not threatened by habitat loss. They live anywhere from bushland and woodlands, rocky areas as long as the soil is loose enough to di…g, snowy mountains, sandy plains, heath, grasslands, semi-arid environments and deserts. Echidnas can be found wherever there are termites and ants. (MORE)
All birds have that, it is to give their beak some flexibility. It's not a hole, it is covered with skin. If the beak was solid, when they opened their mouth it would cut into their throat. With the gap there, the sides of the beak can move past the head and let them open their beak.
The red appendage under the roosters beak is indeed called a wattle. Both wattle and comb have two purposes, they cool the bird during the hot summer and help attract mates. Chickens do not sweat, blood circulates through the wattle and comb and excess heat is dispersed into the air helping to cool …the bird down. (MORE)
When the rooster wants to mate with a hen he will often dance for her first. If she does not respond appropriately to the dance he will be more forceful and peck at her head. The pecking is his way to demand she take a mating position, which is to be crouched close to the ground so he can stand on h…er back and mate with her. (MORE)
It really would depend on the size of the rooster. Spurs will grow to a certain length and then start to curl. They will curl more than once but it is hard on the bird. Walking becomes difficult. Trimming spurs is not that hard.
Some Cochins don't grow spurs. I had 3 Cochin roosters that did not grow spurs.
To know that you must first think about what a pelican eats most people think that when a pelican puts a fish in it's mouth that they are eating it, this is not true as I have seen documentaries where pelicans actually help fish by taking them to find their lost fish-children. Pelicans are kinda lik…e Polar bears because they are white like polar bears so when a bear attacks you, you should feed it so it knows you are friendly (MORE)
Well I think it is kind of obvious but the rooster does "it" with the hen and the hen lays the egg.
Most probably they use their wings to hover over prey and they use the shape of the beak to quickly kill their prey also they use their talons to catch prey and stop it from escaping.
I don't have a rooster... therefore it doesn't have a broken leg (in fact, it doesn't have a leg at all), therefore your question is invalid.
It is the Wattle used to attract a female mate and only found on male turkeys.
There are a few different birds that do this, so I'll just say the flamingo does, and a couple of different ducks do too. There are others, but I would rather not type up a comprehensive list.
Chicken's wattles are to cool them down. They do not have sweat glands, so blood going through the wattles and comb helps cool them down.
A) because the squid has evolved that way B) because it is held in place, and used with powerful muscles in the squids 'head'
Birds have a beak like a bluejay seagull or other birds, humans do not have a beak unless they have a big nose
That flappy thing under the chicken's beak is called a wattle . On other animals, when it is covered with hair, it is called a dewlap. In some cases, the wattle is good for distributing heat when an animal does not have the ability to sweat. In birds, it is also a sign of sexual maturity and an orn…ament used in attracting the opposite sex. (MORE)

Chickens don't really spend any time in a sexual "dance" ordisplay. The rooster is with the hens 24/7, he is the sexualaggressor, and the hens have little to say about it. If they runaway (there is no "heat" or estrus period), the rooster will catchthem, unless something else catches his eye. If the…re is more thanone rooster, the most dominant one will breed first with a hen.Then all his brothers come around to take their turns.
