    Very strange wart like growth. Please help?

    Hello everyone. One of my budgies has developed a strange deformity on her cere right inside/next to her nostril. As you can see in the following pictures one of her nostrils is completely blocked by this growth. It doesnt seem fluid filled, instead it feels hard like tissue. The other nostril has also narrowed too. Also her cere skin covers the upper part of her beak. Cere and beak are a bit shiny in pics because i put some fungal cream on them.








    Waiting for your inputs. Please tell me if you have ever encountered something like this and what it may indicate?

    How old is your budgie? Do you feed seeds to her? Do you feed pellets? (or maybe a mix of both). Do you feed millet sprays? My opinion is that it looks to me the nostril is blocked. Sometimes they get seed hulls in the nostrils. Also, millet does have alot of hulls so it could be the millet hulls as well.

    I would be sure to get the fungal cream approved by a Vet, if it is for humans and not for birds. My concern is that when the nostril (nare) is blocked she will have more problem breathing. I would suggest you contact an Avian Vet or Regular Vet, and give them a call. Perhaps they would have you bring her in for an evaluation. Explain to them what you see on her cere area.

    Thats impossible i m afraid. Because i live in Turkey and we have no avian vets in here and ordinary vets know less about bird health than i do. So if i can pinpoint the problem i ll try to get my brain surgeon friend to perform a little operation for her if needed.

    Ps: The anti fungal cream is a bird product so no worries.

    I am not familiar with budgies too much but do you think this could be the beginnings of scaly beak? Hopefully it is not something else going on in the inside making it close up like that.

    I know this was 4 years ago but I need urgent help. My baby budgie has the exact same thing and I don't know what it is. Please tell me what you found out about this nose thing! Did it develop into something worse? Did it go away on its own?
