From a fall bird

btw ... is it craw or crop? us hillbillies pronounce it craw
A crop (sometimes called a croup or a craw, or ingluvies) is a thin-walled expanded portion of the alimentary tract used for the storage of food prior to digestion that is found in many animals, including gastropods, earthworms, leeches, insects, birds, and some non-avian dinosaurs.
My "hillbilly bone" sometimes causes me to call it a craw too.
The above is a definition from the encyclopedia so it sounds like we are all correct. My grandpa always called it a croup and taught me to check it on every bird I kill.
Many times the turkeys I shoot have empty crops, craws or croup.
