I have an 8 month old Easter Egger that has not started laying yet she had been lethargic the last couple of days. This morning I felt for an enlarged crop and found a hard golf ball sized mass, assuming it was an impacted crop I brought her inside and gave her hot broth, eggs and oil to try and loosen it up. She ate slowly and didn't drink much after she finished I felt her crop and it seemed loose and normal ... She has only pooped white watery today So I took her to the vet, she too felt the crop and said normal, not egg bound no temperature. Not too pale. But off balance and lethargic. After a second exam she found that lump just above the crop took a needle biopsy and an X-ray Under the microscope red and white blood cells nothing remarkable and maybe slight pus .... The X-ray shows an egg shaped hard mass around the trachea and spine dense she sent out for cystology but has no idea what I am dealing with The mass now looks like a hematoma as she must have hit a Blood vessel she gave me Bactrim. And I need to wait for the biopsy. I searched all over for evidence of a wound ..none Chicken continues to be lethargic has to be coaxed to eat An advice ????
