I have a white face cockatiel and recently she has been laying eggs but we noticed she has a big hump on the back of her neck area. Then we noticed 3 days ago that she is missing feathers on the left and right section by her neck more towards (back area). Today, the hump is so big, I could actually see through it since feathers were gone and the size of bald spot is about a dollar coin and then I can see veins, it look so hollow inside, like a big air pocket that has veins. She is so fat right now and her feathers are all thick and all over the place except for those two areas that are now bald. What do I do? Please advise.

Thank you,

Marie

Bump on bird's neck

Marie, this could be serious. Dr. B suggests that you get your bird to an avian vet for an examination. Having your bird seen in person is the only way to determine and prescribe the proper treatment.

I hope the vet will be able to help your bird get well soon.
