Hi all, I've been searching for information on what this could be on my budgie cere I've not managed to find any pictures like it.. I've joined groups on Facebook and all have been helpful but no one seems to have any idea what it could be.
He is a older bird maybe 7 or 8 because of his age I've been very reluctant to take him to a vets he isn't bothered by the growth at all...my budgie has never been handled or left the house or his cage but he is very social and loves being around us...I booked a appointment yesterday with an avian vet but had to cancel as his cage was to big for my car I do however have someone who can take us now in a van but I'm unsure if it's worth the stress to my budgie because of his age the nurse said they would probably want to put a needle in it..
He has had this since December it may have grown slightly but outwards.

He is a beautiful bird, I cannot tell what it is but are you able to determine if it is firm or fluid filled? If it is fluid filled it may be some type of cyst. It is very sad that he has never been out of his cage, is that your choice or his? You should be able to purchase a small carrier for transport, you do not have to take the entire cage.

Was my choice at the time my children was small and I've a terrier dog to and I was frightened that one of the children would leave door open or my dog have him so yea alway been in his cage...I wanted to take the cage as he feels more safe there and didn't want to stress him more trying to get him in a carrier. Thank you he really is a beautiful bird.

Hi, Welcome to Talk Budgies!

I hope things go well for you at the Avian Vet. Please be sure to post an update in this thread after Nibble's appointment.


I would like to recommend you remove the wooden dowel perch in the cage and replace it with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

The information in this link will give examples of better options for perches:
