    I have an Araucana bantam which has recently developed a large lump above its right eye:


    Quite worrying, but no other apparent symptoms. She's quite lively and eating well, though is rather flighty. It was hard enough getting a close photograph of her, let alone trying to pick her up to have a look.

    I'd be very grateful for any suggestions as to what is wrong with her, and how to treat it. Thanks.

    Edit: She's currently in moult, so don't worry about her tatty appearance.
