My female budgie has a lump under her belly and near her but. What does this mean?

The parakeet I had when I was younger ended up developing a tumor that sounds a lot like what you're describing. I agree with Linda, in that you should definitely consult with an avian vet.

This can only mean one of two things: Either she is trying to lay an egg and is being unsuccessful or she has a tumor or some other problem in the area.

For either situation, you must take her to an Avian Vet in your driving area for them to check this out. Egg binding is life threatening, and tumors left to grow larger and larger are also life threatening, so make appointment and get her in to see Avian Vet as quickly as you can.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
