Hi, my flock has been battling but slowly surviving bronchitis. This one hen however has this giant lump on her face. It actually pulls her lower jaw askew. Her eye is completely sealed shut. She is still eating and drinking but obviously suffering. I thought maybe an abscess so I attempted lancing it in two different spots. I expected a bunch of pus to come out but all that happened was A LOT of blood. I had to put cornstarch on it to stop the blood. The lump is hard not squishy like I expected. Any ideas? I will cull if necessary but I really don't want to lose anymore hens.
