    I have a 6 week old silkie chick with a big lump (its squishy like a huge blood blister) Its on her back, like just below the base of the neck. Any ideas what it could be????

    I'll try to get a pic......BRB

    Hmmm.... if its on the back and not the front, then it couldn't be the crop...

    Maybe pics will help - hope it's nothing serious!

    * could be an air sac-- but sorry, I forget what you are supposed to do about it. I think it's a serious condition though. I've only seen 1 or 2 posts on it. Not much help, sorry. . . [​IMG]

    I'm sorry I'm no help, I just wanted to wish you luck. [​IMG] I have never saw or heard anything like that.
