Heya I'm Niamh from an extremely gloomy Ireland (this morning anyway ) . After finding so many helpful answers throughout my first year as a chicken keeper on here I finally joined in hope of helping at least one person with anything I may have learned from my own experience with my chooks up to now. I have 6 precious hens Brida, Tilly, Miss Henny Penny, Poppy, Lilly and Heidi 4 silkies 2black 2white and 2 Rhode Island I never in my life thought I would become so attached to a bunch of chickens yet here I am a year later building swings, creating new recipes and Spending every spare minute I have chatting away to them about anything and everything ha So yesterday I got an unpleasant surprise when having some bonding time with Heidi my 18 month old black silkie. I found a marble sized lump on her back. She is acting normal, eating fine, laying as normal, no feather loss. It appears to be transparent but that may be just me thinking this. Has anyone any ideas what this could be?? As I don't want to put her through any unnecessary stress travelling to the only vet that will treat chickens over an hour and a half away. Thank you in advance for any help. Thanks a mill.
