Hi I'm new to this but I have an emergency! My silver laced Wyandotte has bin sick her comb and wattle are a pale pink and she's very lethargic. She hasn't bin moving around much and she actually let's me pick her up with no problems which is unusual for her. The other hens I have are bullying her and I think it's cuz they no she's sick. She has a couple of sores on her head where they pecked her and some pulled out feathers in various places. She has bin seperated from them now though. I also realized that it seems that her toe has bin..cut of or something cuz half of it is missing and theirs blood on the stub but when she does walk (which isn't to much) she seems fine. My biggest concern is that she might have a tumor because she has a pointy-ish lump on her neck and it's red with no feathers on it. And it's fairly big, about a little bit smaller then a golf ball but it doesn't have that full round feeling like it feels like a little hill. And she's bin moving her neck in a weird way every once in a while. At first I thought it might be a crop problem but it seems to far up to have to do with her crop like its near the middle/top of her neck and when I look at her it's on her right side. I felt it and it is hard and she didn't really have a problem with me touching it. She seems to eat and drink okay though, and all the other chickens are fine. Please help!
