    I noticed a baldish spot on my black chicks neck when we brought him home. It has gotten a little worse and under it is kind of a lump. Any idea what this could be? I took the picture myself but when my husband comes home I can get a better picture. [​IMG]

    It's difficult to make out from that picture, but I believe that may be the chicks crop.
