Lump on Budgie
by: The Vet

This could be a feathers cyst, an ingrown feather, or an abscess. It may also be a squamous metaplasia associated with vitamin A deficiency. You should take your bird in to an avian veterinarian for an exam.

Hi and thanks for writing. Please make an appointment with your local Avian Vet and take your little bird in for them to look at this. It could be a tumor or just an infection, and you won't know until you take him in to the Vet.

Let us know what vet had to say,
Linda
