    So 3 out of my 4 (all different breeds) approx. 4 week old chicks have lumps (almost golfball size) on the right side of their neck. What is that? Is it normal? What do I do?
    Please help =/

    Yep! Perfectly normal [​IMG] Check them in the morning, you'll notice those lumps are gone...but they'll be back in the afternoon/evening time. Good observation though, I owned chickens for many months before noticing the crop area!
