    looking thing on his neck/body area...

    is this normal for them??

    It is really pronounced when you see it in person; not so much here...do I need to do anything about this?

    nice looking chick, could possibly be the crop.

    If it's up on the shoulder and you know it isn't the crop, could be an air bubble. Had a chick with that once and we just let out the air with a sterilized needle. Not sure why that happens, if it's from one of the air sacs.

    Looks like the crop? If the very full crop if what you're referring to in these pictures.
     
  5. I have handraised 4 Turkens from chicks and that looks completly normal. It's most likely the crop . But I wouldn't worry about it.

    It looks like the crop to me too. Can you take the food away for a few hours and see if it goes down?
