    I just went out to feed the flock and let them out and I noticed my Sebright Rooster was a bit slower than normal and was moving his neck while he was eating like something was stuck. I picked him up and noticed a lump halfway down his neck. I felt around but he's got such a thin neck naturally that I couldn't quite tell what was what (trachea, esophagus, spine). He seems to still be eating, but I don't know if it's reaching his crop. His crop is so small anyways, but I think I felt some food in there.

    Any help is appreciated! Please!

    PS: All I have in the house at the moment is Olive Oil. I could get some mineral oil from town if it's advised...
