Hello, Has anyone seen this before? I noticed my 8 mo. old White leghorn had a stain on her neck and I investigated. this is what I found under her feathers. It is under the skin. Do i need to cull her. she otherwise is acting normal. (this is on the back of her neck/between the shoulders)

Could it be an infected feather follicle?

If she were mine, I'd clean it real well and gently slice open just the skin to see what the lump looked like.

Yes I was thinking of doing that. If goo comes out I can clean it and give antibiotics maybe??? She is not acting sick. :/
