Since it was 1 week old it likes to eat a lot and never closes it's beak even when I'm done feeding it. Lately I've noticed that it has a lump on it's chest or crop. Is this good or bad? What should I do?

Have you always fed it the right amount for its weight or is there a chance it was over fed?

What did your vet have to say about it?

Do you mean this? (red);

This is the crop full.
Does it go down before the next feed?
How much are you feeding?
How much does your bird weigh?
Are you allowing the crop to completely empty once per 24 hours?

@Cyan How are you getting on with this bump? Did it go down?
