Hi All,
I found this while playing with Leonard this morning.
Looks to be a feather shaft, and its definatelly attached under his skin.
Its an odd place to have a feather shaft this size though.
It doesnt seem to be bothering him though, and it wasnt painfull for him when I went poking around to have a further look.
Anyone here know what it is, and if I need to have it seen too by an avian vet?

Thanks!
Nathan

Feather shaft on Conure neck

I don't really know what to say, it looks like a feather shaft like you said. I guess if it doesn't change in the next few days, then you should take him to the vet for a check up. Hopefully it will shed it's sheath and just be a feather soon.
