Picture of Tail End of Green Cheek Conure
I recently got my first Green Cheek Conure after having cockatiels for most of my life. I have a quick question, on the back of my conure, he has a small bump protruding, I noticed it while he was preening the other day. I'm not sure if it is a ingrown feather shaft/feather cyst or if it is Preen Gland. Im just worried and want to make sure he is ok. I tried to touch it, and he seemed like he was in pain. I have attached a picture also. Thanks So Much!
