    Is it possible for chickens to get tumors. My black sex link seems to have three very large hard bumps on the back of her heck. No feather in it, My fiance thinks it is a tumor.

    Yes. It is more common in older birds though. One of my JG's has one. Talk to your vet about it if you can.

    It is not the crop they are large raised and circular, the same color as her skin - she is not a baby. None of the vets around here treat chickens..... she was ok with me touching it - she didn't have about 6 weeks ago, the last time i was able to catch her flighty self. After I touched her there and petted her she seemed to want to stay with me which is unusual.
