My chicken has a very concerning growth, almost like a bubble the size of a tennis ball coming off her backside. It was much smaller yesterday when I put antiseptic on it and peck no more and now today it's huge and red. She seems fine but honestly she can't be. Anyone have any ideas what it is and what I can do to fix it. Thanks in advance

Gosh. I can’t really make it out but could it be a prolapse? Is it coming out her vent?

Welcome to BYC btw! It may also be worth posting your question in Emergencies and Diseases section.

Yikes, that's something you want a vet for if possible! It is a major emergency and they can die very quickly (within moments) when it suddenly bursts.
