strange bump

i have a green cheeked conure and he's about six months old i believe. he grew this bump on his lower belly between his legs that i had never noticed before. i figure it has to do something with his sexual maturity, but i'm not sure and it sometimes worries me. he is behaving normal and the bump seems to be a part of his skeletal system but it's hard to tell. is this normal?

Strange bumb between bird's legs
by: The Vet

There should be no bump in this area, even at sexual maturity. I am not sure what you are feeling, but it could be the bottom edge of his keel, or it could be the pubic bones. You should have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian to be sure that it is not a problem.
