    Hi,

    A little while back my slw cockerel cut his wattle. I put neo on it, and it scabbed over. I havent put it on for a few days. I checked it this afternoon, and there was a hard bump near the scab on his wattle. What is it? What can i do to treat it??

    Thanks,

    BAB

    Ok, I could not get a pic. the scab is a black brown line, and sideways to the scab is the bump. It seems to be inside the wattle. And is sorta hard. I put pressure on it, and my roo did not react. I dont know wat to do!

    It could be scar tissue or maybe a pus filled pocket. I'd say as long as your roo is acting ok and you keep an eye on the bump I'd leave it alone.
