If anyone has dealt with cysts on thier chickens, please help!! My hen has a huge cyst (i think it might be bigger than a golfball) under her wing, in her armpit. The worst part is that apparently the cyst busted, and now she is eating /pecking at it. Its turned black where she has been bothering it and it smells bad. Ive smelled worse things, so maybe its not that bad yet. I think the cold weather has helped. But now it getting warm again and shes acting a little sick so i brought her in and gave het some ibprofen and antibiotics. ..poor thing. I dont really know what to do, i dont think i can cut it out myself and i dont want to cull. If i could cull i would do the surgery. Btw, It not mereks.
