big lump on parakeet
by: Tracie

Hello Aries,

You need to ask your mom or dad to take your bird to an avian vet soon. Your bird could have a tumor, but only the vet would know.

Our avian vet suggests that you have your bird on 80% quality pellets like Harrison's and 20% treats. Feed them very few seeds, they cause fatty liver disease and other health problems.

If you need help converting your bird to pellets, please read our Switching Birds to Pellets article.

I am so sorry that your bird has this problem. I hope the vet can help.
