I was holding my chick this afternoon, I dont know if they are still considered chicks they are about a month old, whan i noticed this weird lump on their left breast. Only for 3 of them that I noticed. There is a total of 4. Can anyone tell me if it is bad.

I am going to guess that you are seeing a full crop. If the lumps are gone in the morning that's what it is, and it's normal.

As @keesmom mentioned, it's easy to monitor crops, pull the feed at bedtime tonight and then check their chest in the morning before you give the feed back. Chickens fill their crops a few times a day, especially first thing in the morning and just before roosting,
