Worried about Toodies. Swelling and specked egg.
« on: September 05, 2009, 13:58 »
One of my browns circa 4 months old has a swelling on the side of her face/neck. Also I noticed the eggshell  has tiny brown flecks which I don't think were present in previous eggs.  Has anyone an idea of what could be wrong?

Hi Brian, I don't think the colouring on the shell is anything to worry about but looks like your hen may have an abcess or something like that on her face. I'm sure somebody had one on here the other day so will try to find out for you. She may need it lancing and some antibiotics from your vets. Joy xx
Staffies are softer than you think.

Found this thread with photos - the lump is in a different place but shows you what looks similar to yours only larger. I would get the vet to lance it and some antibiotics, Joyxx

My chookie had a lump on her face a couple of weeks ago...... sort of where the beak hinges :)

I found a hole inside her mouth and squeezed the lump till a hard chunk of pus came out :( :(  Once it was released I left it alone.... she was on Aureomycin due to the flock having the sniffles so as that is a broadspectrum antibiotic it seems to have cleared the remaining infection :) :)

Hope your chookie gets better soon :)
I love Pekins, Polands and Seramas :) and eggs!!!
