I have a 7 year old cockateil that ive had for a year now when i first got him i noticed a bump on his nose , thinking nothing of it i left him alone as he used to belong to and old lady and no one had tamed him.

a couple of months ago i noticed another one next to it that just appeared from no were , hes also started letting me handle him witch is very worrying as i had a budgie with similar problems and he died shortly after ,he also is not doing very well in his flying i normally let him and his lady out and they go back in there cage on there own mostly but instead he either crash lands or just stays sill on the curtain pole also could any one tell me if my parrot or the female can catch this from him

The warts are not normal and will have to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY in your area. Warts are either fungal or viral, and this could be either of those or neither of those. This could be a parasite infestation.

No one on the internet can diagnose your bird because birds have to be seen in person by an avian vet who can then do some tests and figure out what this is and how to treat it.

No one on the internet can tell you if it is contageous or not either. Without being able to see bird in person, no one can tell you much of anything except you have to take your bird to be examined by an avian vet so you can find out what is causing the problem and how to treat it.

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.
