    Ive got a Frizzle Cochin bantam that seems to have some issue with her ear/cheek, it's swollen and whitish on the right side of her face . She doesn't act like it is painful and is otherwise behaving normally, and none of the other chickens she is housed with have any symptoms. Does anyone know what this might be? How I should treat it?

    I could not get her to hold still for a picture so this is the best I can do.

    Oh my gosh she looks just like my Ebbie, see my avatar.. does it feel hard or feel like it has fluid in it? Might be an ear infection or an abcess. or can you look into her mouth to make sure she doesn't have something lodged or stuck inside that could be causing the problem. How old is she?it might help if you trimmed her feathers back some if your having a hard time seeing the skin.
