    I have 4 week old chicks and two of them have a growth on there neck. Is this something i need to worry about. they are eating find, drinking, and growing BIG but so is the growth. At first i thought it was because they were a meat chicken and i have not had them before and they were just getting a big chest. but its on the side of there necks. any thoughts? do i need to put them down :(?
