    After my baby chicks woke up I noticed this bump on one of the wings, like on the side of the bone. Doesn't seem to be bothering her at all, but I can see it through her tufts. It's the size of a pimple, it's hard, and its kind of dark on the inside. Overall the chicken is healthy with no other signs or anything. She's eating, sleep, playing and chirping. I'm not sure if I should be concerned with this or not.


    Thank you for your help!

    How is she doing?

    I would not worry to much about the bump (I cannot see it well) - but it could be a bump where a blood feather is starting. Blood feathers are "new" feathers that are growing - the first stage in feather growth, they emerge from the skin encased in a sheath and filled with blood (this nurishes the feather as it grows).

    Could also be an area where she might have an ingrown feather starting.

    Just keep an eye on it, without bothering the area much. [​IMG]
