Hey everyone, this is Dumpling. She is a bit of a loner. Doesn't really hang out with the other chickens, and gets bullied by Hennifer, the queen of our flock. I noticed in the last couple of months she was looking rough. Lost a bunch of feathers on the back of her head/neck and along her back. My research said molting. But she hasn't appeared to lose any weight, and still leaves us a cute little egg every single day, including today in the bathtub. She has also gotten pretty filthy. A really dirty butt, and pieces of mud stuck all over. Upon closer inspection, I saw a couple of scabs which leads me to think others are pecking where she was molting. I also thought she might have lice. It looked a bit like mites, but at the same time, nothing living that I could find. So I am not too sure. Under her wings look very clear. After cleaning her vent, doesn't look like anything awful down there. Nice and clean. I brought her in for a bath today, and cleaned her up nice. But I found a weird, little bump. Anyone know what this is? It is on her back, near the top of where her tail feathers start. What is going on with Dumpling?
