Hey there! I have one silkie in our flock and am not very knowledgeable about the breed. Prince has always been very odd, he doesn't usually like to be with the other chickens and we usually find him sitting in front of the goat pen looking at them. We joke is our transgender chicken, because he acts like a rooster (although he doesn't crow) but looks like a hen. He is about 27 weeks old. he is eating and drinking normally. I was holding him yesterday and noticed a gold ball sized area on his chest. It didn't seem to hurt him. It now feels like its more off to the right side. Is this a normal part of Silkie anatomy or should I be worried? Of course the ER nurse in me is thinking thyroid/pituitary tumor which would explain his confused behavior : ) Any suggesstions or explanations would be much appreciated!
