    I have just noticed on my 6 month old chicken she has a large very hard limp kinda scary looking on left side of neck. Not her crop. At first I thought she was holding her head funny. Thought this was an Easter egged but I have no clue. Golden colored with black tail feathers. Anyway I am very worried. What should I do?

    Could you post a pic of the lump? What does the lump feel like? Hard, soft or squidgy? Has it been there long or did it appear quickly?
