    I have a chiick about 5 weeks old and she has 2 or 3 bumps on her back. They are sorta like a wart or blister. They are dry and do not seem to bother her. You can see them when she streches her wing. any idea what they may be and how to cure it?

    I just googled this and have NO idea. I'm sorry I can't help. Hopefully someone with much more experience can help. My novice thought is some sort of extra calcium deposits????? Is she acting normal?

    Is it ticks or anything? They might be blisters or sores.

    She is normal acting eats and drinks. No sign of sickness at all. I thought maybe foul pox but that appears to be on the comb and face area.
