I have recently had the sad surprise of finding a large lump attached to the leg of my sweet mottle pullet It was huge in comparison to hher leg size., It wasnt there a couple of months ago when I prepared her for a show so must have grown really fast. After searching online for poultry tumours I found info on Mareks tumours so took her to the vet for confirmation and definittive diagnosis to enable me to take any measures I needed with the rest of the flock. The Histology report states it is a non Mareks Lymphoid Tumour, apparently they can happen spontaneously at any atsge. So sad to lose my wee girl.
