    I have 11 chicks, they are now about a week and a half old. Everyone is doing well eating/drinking/sleeping etc. but there is one RIR that looks like a runt, and now it has what appears to be and feels like a lump on her chest, kind of hard. What do I do?!

    Is it her crop? Right side of the chest? Feel it in the morning after she hasn't eaten all night. It should be much smaller.

    Good luck.

    Quote:Yes I agree with the above poster, Most of us has misstaken the crop for a tumor. I did, and I FREAKED OUT [​IMG] I wish I could have seen my face when I "found" the "tumor" [​IMG]
