A lorikeet egg sized lump near my Scaly Breasted Lorikeet's vent
Hello, about a week or 2 ago, I noticed a lump near my Scaly Breasted Lorikeet's vent. It is about the size of an egg (lorikeet size) but this morning I noticed her straining to pass droppings. She produces runny droppings normally as I feed her wet-mix. It took her about 2 attemps to pass the droppings. Also I am not sure of her age, but I am sure she is an old bird, probably about 10 years. She has had many owners (due to the mess she makes and lots of attetion)so I don't want to give her up. She has also had an ingrown feather/cist, toenails curling over (we have to clip them daily or else she has difficulty moving about her enclosure), scales on her feet flapping/sticking up and now this. She has also been very broody (she doesn't have a mate because she injures them) and wanting to mate then lay eggs. Then wanting to mate again then lay eggs. She is also a hand reared bird and is VERY tame to only the ones she has bonded with. I have also noticed she has not been laying eggs for a little while. I really want to take her to the vet, but I don't think my parents will allow me...Please help!!!
