At first I thought she got in a fight with her cage mate but I Googled rat neck sore and now I'm wondering if it's mites? it was hard to take pictures cause it's a weird spot and she is not happy and doesn't want to sit still.

I can't really see it all that well, but are you sure it's not an abcess? It looked swollen to me, but maybe my eyes are bad. ._.

I tried to take some better photos now that it's brighter outside. maybe that'll help. She does not want to sit still at an angle where I can get a good view and really I can't blame her. But it doesn't really seem swollen.

One of my does has something that looks extremely similar on the back of her neck, its swollen and scabby and doesn't smell very good (started fairly small and got bigger). I'm not sure what it's from either, but the vet gave me baytril to treat it with, so if it doesn't clear up on it's own, or looks yucky, a trip to the vets might be in order :)
