Hi everyone, I've got a 10 day old true Araucana (rumpless with 1 tuft) and have been wanting to start breeding them. Just now we had them outside in their "play pen" for some sun and grass and when my son picked up one to bring it back inside, he said, "Mom, there's a lump on this one." Right in front of its right wing, it has a lump that looks like a fatty deposit. I used to work as a surgical nurse so I've seen a lot of lipomas in people, and it looks just the same. My question is, does this disqualify this bird from the breeding program? I know lipomas aren't hereditary in people but don't know about chickens. I've got 10 chicks and only 4 have tufts, and Lumpy's one of the tufted ones. (We have a twisted sense of humor here so of course we named it Lumpy, lol) Anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks!
