Bird with veiny patch on chest
by: The Avian Vet

At this age it may be the crop that you see. You may have also seen his breast muscles. I recommend that you have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian to be sure that it is normal.

It is not normal and could be an infection, parasite or injury. You need to take him to an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area and show them this patch.

Let us know what avian vet had to say and thanks for writing.
