Lump on my parakeet's neck.

by Krystal S

My male parakeet seems to have developed a lump underneath his feathers on the right side of his neck. It doesn't seem to bother him but it's noticeable and also seems to have an odor. I can't tell if it's the one area that smells or he just needs a bath but I am worried that it could be something and I also cannot locate an avain vet anywhere close to me. Any help would be appreciated..thanks.

Thanks for writing, and I hope all turns out well for your bird.
