Okay, so in addition to the chick who died of mysterious causes and the one who got impacted and had to have help to poop, I've just found a tumor on another chick. (It promptly got named Lumpy, naturally) I can't seem to get a good picture of the tumor but it looks like a lipoma to me--a fat deposit, not dangerous if that's what it is. So does this mean I can't breed this chick? Anyone know? Lipomas aren't hereditary in people, but I dunno about chickens. Sigh... and this is one of the tufted ones, too.
