What is this growth on my chick?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This featherless growth appeared on my chick about a week ago. She's 3 1/2 weeks old now. I think she's a golden laced wyandotte. The lump is soft and slightly squishy. It's increased in size about 50-75% in the past week. She's also the the smallest of my 7 chicks (all born the same day, but different breeds).

 

 

 

Does anyone know what it could be or if it's life threatening?

 

Thanks!

I'm sorry you never got an answer to this! Did I get any worse or did it clear up?

Welcome to BYC phoenixchick. Could it be a peck wound that has become abscessed? Cysts are also common in chickens. Hopefully it will resoves on it's own. How is the chick doing now?
