    I have a 3 week old silkie chick and I just noticed a walnut (half) sized lump on the right side of her chest! It's oval shaped and not hard. What could this be? She not acting sick at all, in fact she's a very active and friendly bird. I'm so worried!!!

    Sorry I should have done my research first. I panicked :) ... just learned that it's likely her crop. Newbie here! I love this chick!!

    Glad you figured it out! I think we all get scared when we first notice that.
