    We've noticed a pretty good sized bump on the back of our rooster. Since it's the only rooster we've ever owned, we're not sure if it's normal or not. So...we took pictures! Opinions?

    That's not normal. You need to peek under the feathers to see what it is - it may be a cyst or an infection that needs tending to. Good luck and keep us updated!
