    Hi I have just looked at my BlackRocks and 1 of my girls looks like she has a lump on the left hand side of her breast and is holding her head funny. I have picked her up and had a look. There is nothing i can see. I have stroked her and this feels like a swollen. She is in no pain and i swalking fine. She does look scruffy today and also looks like her bones are protruding. Please help:hit

    Quote:sounds like a crop issue, if the "swelling" is gone in the am, then it was just a full crop...if not...possible impacted crop or sour crop...

    Thanks for that! I have only had these for 4 weeks and they have become part of the family! Funny didn't think I would ever feel like this.
