Bump on Sun Conure
by: Tracie

I don't know of any free vets. If there are any, I would suspect that they would be so booked it would be a year or more before you could get in.

Bumps are not normal at all. It sounds like a growth, but who knows? Yes, a clear picture would be helpful, but will not do your bird any good because without a vet seeing the bird in person, they can not prescribe a treatment.

I am sorry I can not be more helpful.

This "Thing" is small, it is my birds skin color.(pinkish/peach) it is half way down & in the's along the crease on their stomach going down(vertical). do they have a belly button(this is how it looks, like an out-ty. , or could this be associated with being a him or her? would it help to see a picture? is this something normal?
Thanks again!!

Sun Conure with bump
by: Tracie

If this is a bump and not just a strange colored feather, then you need to take your bird to an avian vet soon for an examination.

To determine if the bird is a male or female, you can have the vet do a DNA test while you are there.
