I noticed several days ago that one of my chickens had a bit of a bump by her mouth. I have been hesitant to take her to the vet without first doing some research, but since I am still rather new to raising chickens, any and all help is appreciated. This chicken is a silver laced wyandotte and is a little over a year old. Since I have noticed this growth, the chicken has also become aggressive with her friend, and does not want to share food. The other chicken was actually more dominant until recently. I am also going to attach some images of the chicken. Any natural home remedies would be greatly appreciated.
Notice the left side in the picture is the swollen side, compared to a normal right side.
