I was handling my 1 year old silkie rooster the other day and while petting him I felt a large lump/bump on his back, I pulled his feathers back and found a large black mass protuding thru his skin. It's about ping pong ball size.
He is acting normal, crowing, eating and gaurding his ladies like nothing is wrong. I only found it because I was petting him.
I have cut the feathers away from the area and put peroxide on it and the top layer/ scan has fallen off and it did bleed a little and it now looks to have a yellow sea sponge type texure mass (as seen in picture).
I have researched and researched with no luck. Does anyone know what this is?
Also give him a spray all over for lice and mites cause those little buggers will have a ' field
Day ' with an open wound like that.
