    My one hen has a Small 1/14" bump about 1/2 cm. long below her vent. What could it be. She also seems to be sitting around a lot. What is it? And is this causing her to sit around a lot?

    Have you tried pushing on the bump?

    Could it be an ingrown feather? I just experienced that the other day.

    Maybe. I haven't tried pushing in on the bump. I don't think the sitting about was caused by it though, I think she was cold.
