    One of my RIR hens has a huge abdomen which cause her to wattle when she walks. It feels fairly firm when you feel it. She also breaths kind of fast. She has been like this for months. What could this be.? She acts pretty normal otherwise but does sit down a lot. Thanks for any ideas.

    It could be a tumer or just a muscle but you should check out a vet for info but this sounds like it could be painfull for the bird
