    Hi, we have a bantam lavender Peking chicken named Pip, who is quite a timid chicken but will follow the others. Today she was quieter than normal and I discovered she had a tick under her wattles (i think thats their name) and we have gotten rid of it but her wattles have swelled up a bit and her throat has too. She's eating, though less than normal, but is there anything we need to do to help her? This is our first time with chickens so me and my parents aren't to sure what to do! :S Thanks!
