My amazon parrot has a lump on his right breast. It is rather large. Any thoughts?

If it feels like a lump of fat it is probably that. Feed Less seed.
If it is hard like a pea it could be a cyst (like an ingrown hair but a feather).
If the bird I'd very fat it could even be the liver. You'd see other signs

Hi Tom, my thoughts are that you should take the bird to an avian vet to see what it is. I have never heard of a "normal lump" so I suspect there is something that needs to be attended to.

I hope all turns out OK for you guys.
