Default Unknown growth on lower breast of parakeet! Please help!

Found growth on my 8 year old parakeet. It appeared out of nowhere fast. I have not handled her to see if it's soft or hard because I did not want to hurt her. However her attitude is great as usual and her daily routine is still active and normal. The pictures show the area of growth and in one shot you can see the L shape of her body from that growth. Any advise what so ever would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

The only thing you can do with a growth, especially one that came on so quickly, is to get him to an avian vet for a proper diagnosis as quickly as possible.

Also, your budgie is male, not female.

Hi there and to the forums!

You've been given great advice regarding your boy. It's not at all a good sign when a random growth appears out of nowhere like that so the best thing you can do is to take him into the avian vet right away to make sure it is diagnosed and treated before it gets worse.

Meanwhile, be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on all the best practices for budgie care.

If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your little budgie around the forums! I truly hope he is able to recover very soon; keep us posted

Cheers

Thank you for your advice! I made an appointment for this Friday to get him in. For eight years we thought he's a she lol so now I guess my little guy is transgender at least he doesn't have to wonder what bathroom to go in!

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
