    help! my budgie has a lump

    i was wondering if anyone could help me?
    i have a two year old male budgie called tweety.
    and over the last few weeks has developed a very nasty lump on his right wing. it is very crusty looking and it's quite large.
    i would be very grateful if anyone could give me any advice.
    thankyou.

    p.s if you would rather get in touch by e-mail. my adress is.

    He needs to be seen by an avain vet.

    A lump like that could be a broken wing, a tumor, or several other things-an avain vet will be able to properly diagnose him for you .

    Partybabe - do you have an avian vet? If not, here's where to find one: www.aav.org/activemembers.html

    Good luck, and please do keep us posted. Do you think you could describe this lump in more detail? I am curious - not used to seeing lumps on wings...

    hi

    hi
    well its kinda hard to describe, because i cant get that close to him to have a good look, he's naturally a bad tempered budgie because his owners in the past mistreated him.
    but what i can see is, its a pale brown colour on the bottom and more of a pinky colour on the top.
    it's about the size of a small grape.
    it doesnt seem to be causing him any pain or discomfort, but he does seem a little more unbalanced than usual.
    he eat's more than he used to, but doesn't seem to be drinking anything.
    ping
