Can anyone help me with this? Coco has what looks like an ingrown feather on her neck, although, I'm not really sure if that's what it is. It doesn't seem to bother her at all when I touch it, it doesn't seem to hurt or anything, but it's been there for at least a few weeks.
Here's a picture...it's the little pink ball on her neck

It appears to be a feather cyst. You're AV can excise it, but unfortunately they tend to recur unless the follicle is completely removed.

If it is a feather cyst it will continue to grow and a cheesy substance composed of keratin will accumulate, and eventually cause discomfort. It's best to have it evaluated by your AV for diagnosis - I'm a far cry from being a vet. smile
