    I have chicken that has developed a "tumor". Is not painfull when manipulated. Is ver fleshy to the touch and is high up on chest. No other symptoms. How should I care for? Anything I can or should do. I'll post a couple of pics if I figure out how.
    Thanks

    That's what I was going to say too. She could have sour or impacted crop.

    could you show us a picture of her from front view, standing, so we can see is it is the crop area that is swollen. Do you notice that the area is swollen more during the day and less when you see her in the morning? This would indicate crop issues, rather than a tumor.
