Question Growth on beak

Hi all,

I used to have this budgie, which i gave to a friend for a year, and now has returned it back to me because he has too many.

I've noticed a small overgrowth/small lump on the beak. I don't thing it is scaly mites (i will treat with invermectinin anyway in a few days if all is ok).

I always keep new birds in quarantine for around a month for safety reasons.
She looks healthy and active. I checked the poop and is normal.

Any ideas of what it might be? Cancerous lump? A wound from a fight? Perhaps scally mites?

Hi there,

From the photo, it seems your budgie has sustained a bad injury on that side of the beak. While this could have been caused by mites, if the cere, eyes, feet and the other side of beak are smooth, in good condition and don't have traces of mites, than this can be ruled out.
I'm more inclined to say that this was the result of a vicious attack done by another bird. Also the beak seems a bit overgrown (from the top to bottom of beak).

It would be best to have your budgie girl seen by an avian vet specialist so that she is properly examined, and the right medication is prescribed in case she needs any type of treatment.

I'm wishing your budgie a steady and full recovery.

I agree with aluz. It would be best to have your budgie seen by an Avian Vet so you can get the proper diagnosis and treatment plan for her.

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.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

I hope your little one will soon be back to 100%.
Please be sure to update us on her condition in this thread.

Best wishes

Default thanks

Thank you for the fast reply. I am ruling out scally mites as i have asked my friend and said he has treated all his birds with Invermectin 1-2 months ago.

I don't want to use medications unless if a bird looks really sick. I know for sure she is healthy and active and poop looks normal. I was told by my friend that she did not have that wound when he gave her to me. I think she had a fight with 2 other females when she was in the small carrier cage and was transporting her home for 2 hours.

Unfortunally the Vets in my country are not Avian Vets. There is someone who i was told is an Avian vet (or at least has knowledge) but she is 2 hours drive away and 2 hours to get back home and that would stress the bird a lot.

My only worry is if it was a cancerous tumor, but she seems healthy and active and sings a lot.

If anything bad happens, i will let you know. Thanks you for the advices.
