Let me try and make a long story short. Rex our chicken is going to be 3 next month and she has mainly been an indoor chicken until we got the ducks last summer and she started spending her days outside but coming in to lay her egg and sleep at night. Well one evening when she came in she had this lump on her breast almost a golf ball size i told my boyfriend about it but when he went to feel it, it wasn't there. This went on for awhile until one day he felt it and it was like from then on it hasn't gone away, now there's a small one starting on the other side. We do plan on taking her to a vet next week but until then I just wanted to see if anyone had any input on this. Also they don't seem to bother her at all we've moved her feather's to look at it we've touched it, we hold her a lot anyways. If anyone can help me or give me any idea's we sure would appreciate it we kinda really like her and want her around for awhile. Thanks in advance!
