    Hello everyone. I am a first time chick momma with 13 chicks who are all 4 weeks old now. Currently, My Cream Legbar developed a small bump right at the bottom left side of her beak (hard bump). Now it seems on that same side of her face there is a small pink section. Pictures aren't the best, all I could get out of her. I noticed today she has been scratching at that place too. She has been eating and drinking and acts fine. Any thoughts on what this all could be or if I should be putting something on it or giving her something? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    If you can get clearer photos post them at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures." to get their opinion.
