    it could be any number of things but I strongly urge you to consult with a vet on this one.

    The images didn't come in too clear but I really don't know much so do consult someone who does. However, I read a posting here once on a hen that had a bump and they found out it was an ingrown feather. Really gross too. Could that be something it looks like?

    What about trying warm compresses to try to bring it to a head.
