    Help!
    Do you think this could be bumble breast? She has a scab on her crop, acting normal.

    If it's on the crop I don't think it's bumble breast. Have you tried putting any neosporin on it?

    I haven't done anything with it, just watching it to see if it gets worse. It is not red or puffy.

    I picked the scab tonight and it looked like there was a worm in it:

    So I tried to pull it out. Then I realized it was her skin. (Hitting myself)

    The hole goes all the way through her skin, I don't know if it punctured her crop. How did it happen? And how could I have missed it?

    Her breast healed up perfectly, I don't know what made the scab in the first place. A while after that I sold her.
