    We have an "egger" that recently has begun to collect poop on her bottom end! We decided to wash her up and were horrified to find a large, "tumor-like" growth underneath the mess. (see photo's)[​IMG]



    We have no idea what's going on, and other than this, she shows no signs of sickness or feeling bad. Was thinking about isolating her to see if she's still laying. Please advise.

    I have no clue, but It might be helpful to find a vet that works on chickens to take a peek
