    Hello,
    I noticed my 1 year old RIR was missing a bunch of feathers around her neck. When I checked her out for mites (I didn't see any) I found a large Lump on her back. It's squishy and there are no feathers growing out of it. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?
    Thanks

    G’Day from down under mpop6 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I have no idea what that is but you might like to try posting on the Emergency & Diseases Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    I do hope she is OK.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
