WELCOME TO BYC. GLAD YOUR HERE... Now, don't you worry about a thing. I'm certain its the crop. Especially, if its eating a lot, the crop will be BIG.

Do you only have one chick, and are you keeping it warm in a brooder under a heat lamp? They will chirp if they are too cold or if they are alone. If the lump is fairly soft on on the right side of the chick's chest just under the neck, it is probably the crop. If the chick is eating it should be okay.
