    Has any one ever seen a chicken with a fleshy mole like growth on their underwing before. It is about the size of 1/2 a pea. It looks like a mole or calcium deposit. It is a banty roo and this nubbin growth is in his "armpit".

    I gathered my supplies and tried to drain it with a needle but it did not drain per say as it is a fleshy growth. I poked it into a mushed mess and then put some ointment on it and cornstarch (it really didn't bleed). I cant really take a picture of it as I mangled it.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone?
