Just recently picked up a white comet chick about 2 weeks old,i have noticed a god sized bump on her back right in front of her/his tail feathers. Does anyone know what this might be? There are feathers growing out of the bump and it is Not discolored,just curious,hope its not anything to worry about.

Sounds as if you are describing the oil gland. If it's not swollen or irritated looking, I would not worry about it.
