    I mean.. he is so big! not like handling a chicken. It is about the size of the end of my finger and very swollen ... looks like something that might need to be lanced? I have no idea what to do -

    Put him in a sep pen and begin antibiotics? wait it out? HELP!

    Is it red, open, oozing or like a pimple? Can you get a picture by any chance?
