Default Lopsided weight loss?

Hey all. As you know, the budgies are on a diet and I believe have already lost a bit of weight! I am still trying to find a good weigh scale, kitchen shops are hard to find here :-/
That being said, I've noticed Lemon's chest is now... lopsided. I'm wondering if this is common or I'm needing to go to the avian vet asap in case it's a lump instead. Though honestly I will probably take her anyway as I firmly believe in better safe than sorry, but still. I'm going to try and take a picture for y'all, but she's my nervous budgie and I can't just pick her up without upsetting her greatly. Her behaviour is normal, her poops are perfect. She's eating, drinking, etc. Just lopsided.

Moira,

A picture would definitely be helpful but weight loss should not be lopsided.

I do think having Lemon checked by your Avian Vet would be advisable under the circumstance.
Please let us know how Lemon is doing after her check up.

You can get digital kitchen scales through Amazon.

Moira,

I'm sorry to hear about Lemon--I agree with Deborah that weight loss does not occur in a lopsided way and I agree that an avian vet visit is in order.

Please keep us posted on how things go!

Here are some pictures:

The 'normal' side is closest to the camera. You can see her midline, then the large far side.

Moira, it does look like there is a definite 'lump' there. Let us know what the vet says, good luck Lemon .

I love the last pic of Lemon and Sweetie, they look so adorable.

I've made an appointment for 2:10pm today with the avian vet, so we'll see how it goes. My poor Lemon, she's had a rough couple weeks

Wishing you very well at the vet today. Hoping the news is good.

Both Lemon and Sweetie are lovely budgies! Have you noticed how Sweetie has completed his outfit threads with matching coloured feet? That's what one could call Style with Aplomb!
