Our 6 year old, female cockatiel has developed a soft bump in the middle of her lower back. It feels like it has fluid in it and is about the size of a small grape. Just wondering what it could be and if it requires a vet's attention.

Cockatiel with lump on back
by: Tracie

Yes, Dr B suggests that you find an avian vet to examine your bird. He can not tell what is wrong without examining your bird and getting background information from you. The avian vet might need to draw fluid from the lump and run some lab tests also.

I hope everything turns out okay, please let us know what you find out. It will help others that have the same question.
