Exclamation Budgie has strange lump on chest??

This morning, I noticed one of my budgies has a very abnormal looking lump on his chest. Although it's cold now and normal for them to puff up to keep warm, I can still see the lump even when he's puffed up (his buddy isn't even puffed up at all which makes me think that maybe he's puffed up because he's ill). He is also 'preening' the lump area which I read could be that it's irritating him.
Also, have noticed that the droppings in the aviary have been far more green and softer. They are completely normal in shape, just the colour is different. They were yellow with no real shape before they went green and today, I have noticed that they are yellow again but still maintain the usual shape for a budgie dropping. Yet they seem softer.

I would really like some help with what this could be as I am very concerned for my little budgie.

Thank you.

Welcome to the forums!

I'm sorry your budgie has developed a lump and hasn't been feeling well.
Unfortunately, we can't tell for sure what is wrong with your budgie.
The growth could be a fatty deposit or could be something else.
For an accurate diagnosis and most adequate treatment plan, you will have to book an appointment with an avian vet specialist.

The change in the droppings you have noticed is it from your entire flock?
If so, have you recently changed your budgies' diet?

I hope you will soon have the answers on your budgie's condition and I'm sending my best wishes for a steady and full recovery.

I would get to an avian vet as soon as you can. It could just be a fatty lump or it could be a tumor. Either way, only a biopsy from an avian vet will get you the right answers.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It is important you take your budgie to an Avian Vet for the proper diagnosis and treatment plan for the lump on his chest.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Hi there and to the forums!

I agree with the advice offered above. Based on what you have described, an avian vet visit is definitely the right way to go. Only then will you have a concrete answer on what the lump could be.

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help

Please keep us updated on your little one's condition! I hope that he feels better soon

Cheers!
