Plucked Lumpy Tiel Please Help
by Megan Maree Wright
We have a cockatiel that we've had for about 2 years now and last year it started to pluck its feathers. Sometimes it gets better and they start to grow back but then it just plucks them all again and now its almost completely bald. Also there is a strange lump thing on its chest that isn't there all the time and sometimes it gets really big.
When you press on it it feels like a beanbag full of beans but doesn't seem to hurt we were wondering what it might be and if it has anything to do with the plucking.
Also if its plucking from boredom what can we do to help as it won't play with any toys that we put in there.
