I hope someone can give me some help. I have a lovely little male budgie called Lemonade who is 7 months old. He is very bright and active and his days are all about fun and games. I noticed this morning as he was on my finger what I thought was a lump on his back, right below his head. I asked my partner who also agreed that it looked a bit raised in that area.
We tried to hold him to get a look but he hates his back being touched and was wriggling about so much. I gave him his 'shower' under the tap as he lets me touch his back then, but I could not actually feel anything, but the day has went by and it still looks like a lump.
He doesnt seem bothered, and is still talking away, flying about and playing with his toys, and eating and drinking.
Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?
He has just finished molting, and also he is very excitable and constantly bops his head (i wondered if he was doing this far too much and maybe thats to do with the lump?)
Im just worried as my boyfriends mum's bird died due to a tumour this year, and also Lemonade's little friend that he had when we first bought him died suddenly after only a few weeks.
Could it be an ingrowing feather, weird muscle or maybe just his shape changing as he gets older?
Sorry for such a long post ..
