    A few weeks ago, I found a small lump on the side of my chicken's head. It's a little bit above her ear. It moves around under the skin, and it's not too big, but we don't know what it is. Any ideas? She's a 1 yr old SS.

    Yes. They aren't very good, because I couldn't get very good ones because she kept moving her head. [​IMG]

    You can kinda see it, above her ear.

    I pulled back her feathers here...

    It's not a soft...whatever it is, it's more on the hard side.
