Can you get another picture at a different angle. It might be the crop? I'm not good with chicken anatomy yet but I hope a more experienced person gets here fast

If you feel like it can you answer these maybe I can give you some info

How was its breathing before it died
How well was it eating
Was there any other symptoms

It was breathing ang just before it died it flapped it wings real hard.....a little water left its mouth once it died....
It was normal but smaller than the other chicks.

Or another possibility is it had an impacted crop, you said there was a swollen bit on its neck. If it was hard than that might be it.
