    Hi Guys, I bought a hen with 10 chicks on Monday (6 days ago), this one has had a scaly growth arond the bacl of its head since Monday and today found stuck to mums underside, we have tried to wash it off with saline and he/she is now in a box with us in the living room on top of a hot water bottle! The fur/feathers seem to have dried ok but the groeth id till visible, The growth isn't weeping and the chick is the same size as the rest, it seems to be eating and drinking normally, any ideas on what to do please??? Thanks xx

    A photo would really help us.

    Keep the chick fed and well hydrated (lots of clean water)

    keep us informed.
