    I have my very first chicks including 2 white rocks...they seem to have an area on their necks that looks like a lump under the skin...any ideas? Should I be concerned?

    Thanks, Sarah

    If it is in the chicks' upper right chest under the neck, it is their crop where food and water are stored before moving through the digestive tract.
