Moluccan cockatoo bump
My Moluccan Cockatoo Honey has a bump on his back right next to his spine and near his hips that has been there for at least a month or two. He is at least five years old and used to be a frequent feather pluckier due to what I can only guess was neglect by a previous owner and sexual frustration.
I have no idea what the bump is, but it does not seem to be bothering him. Honey does not bite at it or scratch it and he has no reaction when I rub the spot. It is about the size of a peanut or a dime.
Honey also losses at least 3-4 feathers a day when he comes inside and that also has me worried most of the time it is small down feathers and a couple of larger body feathers. I currently do not have enough money to take him to the vet. What could be wrong with Honey?
