I can't tell from the pic but is the crop swelling. If so, touch it and find out if it is hard or if it is soft and moveable. If it is soft and moveable it might be a ruptured airsac. My guinea keet got attacked by my cat and he swelled up from his crop all the way to his neck and I had to drain it. Your chick might have something else but I cant really tell from the picture.
It's actually on the top right, almost on her shoulder. Soft and moveable
Almost squishy. I have her quarantined
Put her to the light and if it is in fact a ruptured airsac, you will see it is very translucent.
Can these go away on their own? I got home from work last night and it's gone, and she looks completely normal.
Yes, ruptured air cells can recede on their own.
Phew! Good to know. So is she ok to come out of quarantine?
Yes, she's probably fine. Just keep a close eye on her.
