    One of my Barred Rock Hens just over 6 months old- has a large lump in her upper neck. It’s huge, egg shaped and size. She does not have any other symptoms that I can tell right now. She is laying eggs daily. Is this a potential problem should I do something or just wait it out?

    I don't think it is. I felt my other chickens to see if they had same and no one does. It doesn't seem to bother her when I touched it but its so alarming because its so big.
