My Female Blue Back/Black Head Gouldian has swelling over her right eye the size of a small pea since 5/14/09. It almost looks like a small boil. She tries to rub it on the perch, so I know that it is bothering her. My girlfriend who is a finch breeder said that she had the same problem with one of her gouldians and recommended treating her with Ciprofloxacin, which I did for 10 days and it's still there...any ideas or thoughts of what it is or how to treat it?? Her Vet. told her it was like an ingrown feather. She seems perfectly healthly and fine other then this.
Thanks in advance,
