Tumor on new chicks neck and head pics are graphic

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok this is my first time hatching chicks by myself but I have had a great turn out but I have three chicks that have a swollen neck they also could not get in position to come out of the eggs themselves for this reason so I had to help them other wise they all three would have died. Ok one chick is acting normal butthe back of his neck and part of his head is huge, the other one is acting fine a Nd almost looks normal just a little swollen. The third died so I cut the skin to investigate what might be causing this and it is a yellow see threw tumor that feels like soft rubber. I will attach pics does anyone know what this is or what could cause it?
