Some of my chick's seem to have a lump on the front of their necks.
Any idea what could cause that?

Quote:It's most likely their crop. The crop is at the top of their chest/bottom of their neck, and usually likes to the right. It holds food before it's let into the gizzard. It should be bigger after they eat ( actually-- huge) and goes down as the food goes into it's gizzard.

OK!
That makes perfect sense because they just munched on some meal worms.

Being a first time chicken mama, I had NO idea what was going on, and I got scared.


Thanks!
