1 week old Meat chicken, had a little bald spot I first noticed 2-3 days ago, now its turning into a ball of fluid. Had a vet do a fine needle asperite of it but havent got results yet (I work at the clinic), shes thinking probably abcess. What do I do now?

Isn't there a contagious form of abcess that chickens can get and people can get it from the chickens? I can't remember the name of it. I hope its not that.

I did a quick google search and it was MRSA that I was thinking of, I didn't read all the articles so I don't know if I am remembering correctly or not. Just do a search on it and see what you find
