We just added to our collection of chickens yesterday with four new chicks. (They’re obviously under a light & not with the hens). The salesperson checked them over; eyes, body, butt and all looked good. However, today, the black australorp has something sticking off of her chest. Looks like her breast bone! She’s trying to pick at it & it was not there yesterday. Looks like crusted long feathers or twigs but there is nothing like that in their cage/pen. She’s still walking, eating, being curious….
What is this?! Pease help.
