First thing I would do is see a vet if that's an option, especially if you have a vet that's well versed with birds. I won't lie and say that I wouldn't worry about it, but really, you never know. Maybe it's something treatable. I haven't looked Auggie over for any more of these cysts, but your discovery has made me realize that I need to (I hate to bother a near perfectly behaved rooster too much, if that makes any sense but it seems necessary). I will try to get a picture of his cyst tonight. This is Auggie before the cyst/lump showed up (it's on the other side of his face though). Your hens showed up pretty much overnight, right? I really hope it's nothing too serious. Whatever is going on with our birds might be completely unrelated but it sounds similar.
