    Hi I'm new to Backyard Chickens and new to having pet chickens. One of my girls has a large bump or growth under one of her wings. Can anyone tell me what it is? I have felt under her wing and it feels normal. Almost like she grew very fast just on one side of her body. Should I not be eating her eggs?[​IMG]

    It sounds like it is the crop. The crop becomes full and will feel like a bubble.
    It is completely normal and just means your bird has had plenty to eat. It should go down by morning.
    Are you certain your bird is a hen?
