swelling near vent
i have a congo african grey that has developed swelling by the kiel bone and vent area right below the belly.I have always believed him to be male (didn't want himt to go thru torture of sexing), as my aviary vet put it, if he hasn't laid an egg it's probably a male.he is very active and has strong appetite and is not exhibiting any signs of illness.
I am wondering if this is the process of laying an egg or is it something more serious that requires an aviary vet visit. He is a rescue that i adopted 5 years ago.He was a plucker so he has no feathers on his belly whatsoever, which is the reason why i noticed it.I named him Winston.He is a very mild mannered Grey and is smaller in size then his adopted brother. He has had this swelling for 2 days now.
