Cockatiel lump

Hi I noticed today that my cockatiel has a lump under her belly, between her legs. She has been sitting for weeks on eggs in a nesting box so I only saw her today for the first time since. She is not tame so I cannot examine her more closely. She appears well otherwise.

Cockatiel with lump

You didn't ask a question, but I am thinking you are wondering what it is. The only way you can find out what is wrong, and get the proper treatment, is to take your bird to be seen by an avian vet in person. Dr B can not help over the internet because he can't examine your bird nor biopsy the lump.

If you do not have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
