    It's hard to tell in the pictures but Einstein has a golfball size fluid filled bubble on the base of his neck to his side. He has always had crazy looking feathers, hence the name, but it's like his under layer of feathers are falling out everywhere. Please help![​IMG]

    Anyone? He is 5-6 weeks old. May be it's filled with infection? Would you drain it then treat?
