spike on back of birds neck
Hello, I have had my cockateil for about a month now and was petting him and noticed on the back of his neck close to his sholderblades, there is a black spike like thing. It almost looks like a feather that is only stem. It does not show through the feathers but is right below them. He is a white and grey cockateil. He is my first bird and want to make sure he doesn't need to be taken to the vets. He doesn't seem to be bothered by it.
