It could possibly be sour or impacted crop, or he could have simply just had a large meal. I would wait and see if the lump gets smaller overnight. If it doesn't, feel the area and let us know---does it feel hard, or does it feel squishy? Is there a bad smell coming from the birds beak? Also if you can, post pictures! Good luck!

It's hard.

I'll check in morning for sure.

Ugh. He has not had any grit for awhile. Maybe it's that. We put some with his feed before bed.

Not really sure what I'm supposed to take a picture of. [IMG]

It's there on the right side of the bird but you looking at would be the left side. Now my daughter says it feels squishy. I guess the kids had fed him a bunch of corn and no grip maybe that was the cause. I don't know very much about chickens yet
