my african grey is a feather plucker he is all pure skin down his stomach area so with him being like this it was easy for me to notice a big lump going down his stomach from his throat area. the lump is brighter pink. do you think this is anything to worry about. thanks j brien.

This could be his crop. Or it may be something serious. Take him in to see an avian veterinarian for a diagnosis and treatment.

If you haven't taken him to the vet for the feather plucking you really need to take him for the lump. Its not normal. And sometimes the plucking can be caused by an illness. An antibiotic and Pluck-No-More cured my birds plucking.
