I have 7 chicks that are 2 weeks old and they all have the same thing. They have a bump or I guess it's a lump on their chest on the right side. Doesn't seem to bother them. They were all hatched and some are EE's and some are OE's. Is it possible they all have the same thing? Could it be some sort of defect or a tumor?

Yep, that's the chick's crop where food is stored before being process through the remainder of it's GI system. You're not the first to ask. You'll have more questions to come.... always ask. Enjoy your new goobers!

I thought the crop was on the left. Well at least that clears things up.
If it is still full in the morning is there something I can give them to help pass the food??
