    Hi I,m a newbie chicken lover. I got 6 chicks about 2 weeks ago and one of them has developed a growth on the side of her neck. its big enough to keep her head sideways. She is eating and drinking ok, but she is not as active as the other chicks. I don,t want t to destroy her if I don,t have too. Any suggestions for me?

    Are you sure it's not just the crop?

    G’Day from down under vickiekitt [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope the folks on the ER Forum are able to help out and that it turns out OK.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
