    Hello everyone, I just recently joined but only for some help with some pretty bad stuff. I currently own a flock of 8 Budgie Parakeets and have never had a problem with them... until now. Today, I had massaged one of my bird, Mango’s wings only to find a pink lump on it. Today is Sunday so the vets are closed. I also found on my other bird, Kiwi, the same thing most likely??? It feels weird on Kiwi, so I am not so sure. Is this something to be worried about? Is this a tumor?! Money is very tight right now so is this really something I have to take to the vet? image.jpg
    Thanks. image.jpg DAA8D5F5-A815-450A-9D68-674FB28B37FE.jpeg

    I think what you are feeling is just their elbows! Does it just feel like a bony little bump?

    If you're worried I would say take them to the vet, but I had the same thing happen with Ollie and it ended up just being an elbow like @karen256 said. I swore I never felt them before either.

    Woah! That’s great. I’m thinking I’m just going to wait and see if they get any larger...
