    My favorite chicken has this lump on her back. It is hard and she is still acting normal. I have no idea what it is and would love some help.

    First I would put her in a sanitary tub or sink and soak her for a good 20 minutes or so, then try to peel what you can off.

    Them photograph what you have left and repost your findings.

    It could be an abscess from a wound or possibly there’s a tumor under it.
