    My BR rooster has these hard lumps/bumps on his face. I noticed the first one a couple of weeks ago. He now has three, one under his eye, one above his eye, and one small one on his wattle. His comb and wattles also seem more pale.

    Heres some pictures

    Heres a pic of another one of my br roosters, just to show how pale the other ones watter/comb are.

    What could this be? At first I thought it was a sinus infection, but the lumps are hard not soft [​IMG]

    Hmmm.....bee/wasp sting, or red ant stings?

    Quote:At first i did think it was some kind of bite/sting but hes had one for 2 weeks. Wouldn't the swelling go down by that time?
