Large neck growth

Post by chickenfan » Mon Sep 09, 2019 9:53 pm

My lovely 7 year old Marans hen Grace has had a large growth near her crop like a tennis ball for over a year. She has remained very cheerful and well, but is now pulling out her feathers over the growth, which may be a little bigger, so I imagine it feels tight or uncomfortable in some way. I just wonder if anyone has had a similar problem and if so how things went and what they did about it.

Sounds like some kind of tumour Chickenfan? Have you checked her for cankers? We had an Orpington with a growth in her throat and eventually she couldn't eat and struggled to breathe so had to be PTS. All you can do is keep a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't suffer unnecessarily.
