my hen has a lump in her throat

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This morning when i was feeding my silver laced wyandotte i found that one of them is having trouble breathing so i picked her up and felt her neck and she had a lump in it ....We opened her mouth and shined a light down it to have a look (because it was up the top of her neck ..near where the very back of the tounge ) and there is a corn coloured thing at the enterance of her wund pipe ......we think it may be tonsilitis but not sure the few seconds we had her mouth open i managed to get a photo ......does anyone know what it is ? Or how to cure it?
