Took my beloved rooster to the vet today, and found out that he has a tumor on the back of his head. I have only had him for about a month and a half. I got him and a hen from a local rescue, and they both immediately stole my heart. His girlfriend came with some mysterious infection, and died two weeks ago. He is very depressed, and I believe this has caused this tumor to start growing faster. He had it when I got him, but this is my first time having chickens and he is a Silkie, so I wasn't sure what all growth their should be making his "comb". The vet I saw wanted another vet with more experience to decide if surgery would help him or not, so I am stuck waiting until next week to find out if that's even an option. Has anyone else had tumors on their chickens? Particularly on their head? If so, what did you do, and how did it turn out? I am in full on freak out mode. I just lost her, I don't want to lose him too.
