    I'v never seen it but I know there is an answer here for you.

    Anyone posting a pic like that deserves an answer.

    Hopefully someone who knows will catch the bump. [​IMG]

    One of my chickens had something similar that was a yeast infection. It was called "Thrush" (or "vent gleet") If you google these two terms you will get a lot of very different answers to how it should be treated. I gave my chicken plain yogurt. If I remember correctly (this was a number of years ago) I also gave her some Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother in her water. This seemed to help somewhat, but we never completely got rid of the condiition. I sell my chickens when they reach 2 1/2 years old and she reached that age before I could see if this treatment completely cured the condition. Good luck with you chicken. I hope this helps.
