I have 4.5 month old leghorns and recently discovered that one of them is developing a strange bump on her nose. At first is almost looked like there was a piece of beak that was hooking up a little, near the nostrils but now it is developing some sort of black bump underneath. I am almost wondering if it is dirt, etc collecting under the hook that was forming but didn't want to mess with it too much until I posted to see if any of you knew what it might be. She is not showing any signs of illness or problems at all. What could it be (it doesn't really look like some of the tumor photos I've seen in other posts)? It really does look the upper part is actually part of the beak. Any useful info would be appreciated.
I tried to take some pics but she was not thrilled with the idea of me trying to get some closeups so they are a little blurry.
Thanks for the help!
