Hey, I'm hoping someone can help me out. I have a five week old bantam cochin chick that I noticed has several large tumor-like growths on his head and neck. He is acting normal, eating and drinking etc. The tumors are each about the size of a dime and the skin over the lumps is black and hardened. The tumors are movable, like fatty tumors in dogs, and soft except for the hardened skin. Has anybody had anything like this? I looked allover the web and couldn't find anything. I hatched this chick in an incubator and all of his siblings are tumor free. The first pic, shows the black hardened skin on the head tumor. The second one is of the normal side of his face and the third is of the largest tumor on the other side of his face.
