The Snail and the Quail
As with most other organisms that have a crop, the crop is used to temporarily store food. Not all birds have a crop. In adult doves and pigeons, the crop can produce crop milk to feed newly hatched birds. Scavenging birds, such as vultures , will gorge themselves when prey is abundant, causing their crop to bulge. They subsequently sit, sleepy or half torpid, to digest their food. Most raptors, including hawks, eagles and vultures as stated above , have a crop; however, owls do not.
Similarly, all true quail Old World quail and New World quail have a crop, but buttonquail do not. While chickens and turkeys possess a crop, geese do not have one.
The fact that geese do not have crops occasioned what many consider to be the great fictional detective Sherlock Holmes '—or rather author Arthur Conan Doyle 's—biggest forensic blunder. In " The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle ", a large valuable gem is supposedly hidden in a goose's crop. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
