Ugh, I've never posted before this week and now I have 2 emergencies (my post earlier this week was for bloody droppings and they are now all on Chorid). I just noticed that my americana chick has a very large growth/tumor on her neck/chest. I got her on 4/18/2015, I believe she was a week old or less at that point, since than we have noticed that she really hasn't grown very much but otherwise seems healthy, active and alert. I cannot see any obvious sign of injury and I pick her up almost every day and this is the first time I've noticed this growth. What should I or can I do? Does anyone have any advice? I'm scared about what might happen, I've grown really attached to her. PLEASE HELP ME!

After freaking out a ton and reading a bunch of past posts, this might look like a very full crop? Can anyone confirm this? This lump is just so big it's scary looking!

Looks like a full crop. You can easily confirm by not feeding overnight. Tumors don't go away overnight but crops empty. Also crops feel a bit squishy and malleable, tumors are firm and do not change shape with manipulation.
