We've been dealing with this issue for about three weeks now. I've scoured the internet and I've posted online but I'm still unsure of what else I can do for this poor bird. Three out of nine birds have had the same lump appear in the same location on the upper beak. I thought it may be fowl pox, but none of them have any other symptoms. No scabs or bumps of any other kind. The lump appeared suddenly and looked like this (sorry they're not focused. She won't stay still) Within a couple days it grew considerably. It looks vascular and pink, and it occasionally bleeds and cracks. It's wasn't yellow and didn't seem like an obvious infection. Another hen had a lump pop up almost overnight in the same spot. It was yellow and it looked like an infection. And then one more pullet had a minor lump appear. The inside of all the birds' mouths appear normal. No respiratory symptoms or discharge or any other symptoms. I treated everyone with 7 days of duramycin and treated the lumps with iodine and antibiotic ointment. (Without pain relief) It seemed to help considerably and the second and third hen are almost all better. It halted the growth on my white bird, but in the last two days, it started growing again and is considerably larger. The other birds don't seem to be messing with it, but it's getting large enough that I'm worried that her nostrils will become blocked. And it occasionally bleeds. Someone suggested that I cut it out, but I read that there are a ton of nerve endings in that part of the beak and I'm not sure that I wouldn't make it worse. I finally found a vet that works on poultry, but it's quite a drive. Has anyone seen anything like this before? How did you treat it?
