    Hi everyone,
    So I've recently noticed a lump on one side of Glinda's chest. I've never had chickens before but my other bird doesn't seem to have this. Does anybody know what it is, if its common, is it something to worry about? Thanks.[​IMG]

    Is she a real good eater? Does it go down at night? It's probably her crop. Their crops are on the right side of their chests. They eat all day and fill it up, then overnight digest the food so it goes down. Nothing to worry about unless it is still large in the morning or hard.

    Welcome to BYC!

    Wow thank goodness! Yes she eats a lot of food, it isn't hard but I'll have to check how it looks tomorrow morning. Thankyou :)
