ok, any insight? it's been there for maybe 2 weeks and started small then gets gradually bigger. she's acting fine and it doesn't seem to pain her, but it sure doesn't look good. sorry it's not a very big picture

The pic doens't show up, but if it's on the chicken's chest, it's the crop. That's a type of "holding tank" for their food before it heads to the gizzard, where it's ground up for digesting.
