Galah with swollen neck

If the swelling goes up and down after eating, this would be the crop filling up off and on as it eats.

If the swelling is not under the beak, and remains day and night, then it could be a tumor or an infection or even that that the bird ingested something and it is stuck in it's crop.

You didn't mention how long you have had the bird or if you are a new bird owner, so if you know about the crop filling etc., then please don't take offense that I mentioned that.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
