My quaker parrot developed a lump in his chest in about 15-20 minutes - I don't know what's wrong with him. I do know that my parakeet did the same thing shortly before he died... so I'm worried. He's a young bird, eats plenty of food, and is generally healthy. The only thing that's wrong with him is that he does pluck out his chest feathers.. So I don't know if that's connected? Any advice on a swollen quaker parrot chest, and anything I could do?
