    It's a bit hard to see in the pictures but she has a lump on her head. It is somewhat bald and crusty. I rescued her and some other bantams like her from awful conditions and I just want to know what it is. I'm not going to mess with it because I am certainly not a vet but if it is really bad for her, I need to know if I should just put her out of her misery. I certainly don't want to do that but if it's for the best I will. It doesn't really seem to be bothered by it and if you touch it it doesn't seem to cause her pain. Just need some friendly advice thats all. [​IMG]

    Is it just possibly a healing wound from before you rescued her??

    I hope so. The less I have to worry about the better. [​IMG]
