some photos of her poop.
These are the watery ones but she also poops with feces that are dark green in colour. Constantly observing, i felt that i have always seen her vent swollen. I request you to plese list down the signs of a tumor . And if possible post a picture of a healthy budgies vent area.

More pics for clarity. I want to also ask whether the chest and abdomen swellings are fatty deposits or is it a tumor or something? Or i am overly alarmed?

The poop does not look normal from what I can see.
Please read the information in the links I've provided.

Taking the time to read ALL of the stickies and budgie articles throughout the forums will help you learn to give Kiwi the best care possible.

Poopology 101

Evaluation of Bird Droppings

Do not give her toys with thread on them.

Dangers of Snuggle Huts, Rope Perches and Tasseled Toys

I strongly suggest you replace the wooden dowel perch in her cage with natural wood perches. She also should have a swing and some chew toys. Take a look at the information in these threads:

Pressure Sores

Essentials for a Great Cage
Resource Directory

I don't see any sign of tumor from the pictures you've posted.

With regard to her feathers, she may simply be molting.

She needs to see an avian vet. Could just be a GI infection but I would suggest you mention to the vet about a bornavirus test. You could call ahead of time to check prices. My girl budgie just tested positive for bornavirus last week, after years of me taking her to the vet for some similar symptoms that you mentioned. I wish that I had had her tested sooner but I don't think anyone ever mentioned the possibility of the virus to me. In the meantime if you have other birds, wash your hands before feeding or handling them directly after handling or feeding your birdie that you mentioned.

Thank you FaeryBee for your advice and suggestions. I have read all the stickies that you have posted .I think that it could be a possible liver damage and definately ask about it to the vet. I am so relieved that is not a tumor. I also agree that i should not give her toys with thread. But i cannot change her perch because my other bird has a feet problem (his both legs are curved) so he will not be able to balance properly.Also i had provided her with a swing but then she stopped swinging on it as the other bird chased her(because she used to chase him when he used to sit But about the feathers she is not moulting because her feathers are always in this condition.
Again thank you for your advice

You need to find a vet that has experience in treating birds, even if you have to travel a bit it is worth it. There are common tests that can be done that will aid in determining what the problems are. A simple gram stain test on the droppings will reveal if there is any bacteria or other organisms in it that indicate disease and a CBC blood test would give a lot of information on the condition of your bird, including if there is a liver problem, but you need to find a vet that is experienced in doing these tests.

Update: I have consulted three online vet sites for free. Firstly on petcoach i got the answer that it might be a liver disease and you should take her to the vet.

Secondly on petcoach only but it said that try changing her diet from seeds to pellets .

Thirdly on vet babble that it can be bornavirus or a GI problem. Try consulting a vet.

But the problem is i cannot change her diet to pellets because she is very picky eater and she might not eat for days without seeds. She also eats too much and every time i see her sitting by the bowl of seeds. I also cant cut down the millets because she dosent allow the other bird to eat and she might finish off whole and the other would starve...

I also cant take her to the vet due to the virus. I had once consulted a vet online with proper fees and diagnosis but he did not give any medicine and told to take her to the vet so it was not worth the price.
What can i do then?? 😞
