    Hi.
    I JusTGot A New Batch Of Baby Chicks . The Ones Who Survived Shipping Are Doing Great. HoweverToday I Noticed My Buff Brahma Girl Appears To Have A "Mass" Between Her Legs. Like Looking Like A Toddler Running Around With A Full Diaper. :) She Gets AroundFine, Eating And Drinking Well,Output Seems Normal ....Acting Just Like The Others! I Maybe Could Say She Is Breathing Harder...I Felt It And It's Hard And Not Attached To Anything..Like Possibly The Back End Of A Keel Bone???
    What Could This Be
    How Do I FixI It/How Did It Happen?
    Is She Going To Be Able To Lay Normally If/When It Does Heal?
    Cull?

    Thank You For The Help.....I'm All NewToChicken Owning (But I Love It So Far)
