White rock chicks (2 of them) 1.5 weeks old with weird lump on side of their throat..I have pictures if I can figure out how to attach them

I have my very first chicks including 2 white rocks...they seem to have an area on their necks that looks like a lump under the skin...any ideas? Should I be concerned?

Thanks, Sarah

If it is in the chicks' upper right chest under the neck, it is their crop where food and water are stored before moving through the digestive tract.
