Customer Question

chate I have a cockatei which has developed red lumps over both eyes. It started with one large lump and has progressed to the other eye.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the bird's name and age?
Customer: He is called cocky and is about 6 years of age.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about cocky?
Customer: His feathers appear to be somewhat moist.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. Can you upload a photo(s) of Cocky's face to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.
