    One of my toms has a large almost golfball sized lump under his ear that has a large scab on it and a pea sized bump right next to his eye. Any ideas what they might be? He was fine yesterday I don't recall anything on him yesterday. I don't know if he got in a fight with the other Tom or if it's an illness of some kind but I'm a little worried about him [​IMG]

    I just looked at it again it's turned yellow and the scab part looks really dark.

    I am not an expert, but it could be Avian Pox. I right now have a flock of turkeys and chickens with it. I have learned alot from the threads here. I hope this helps. And you will get great advice here also.
