I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. How old is your parrotlet, please? Is the "lump" on or under her skin? Is she an egg layer? Where on her body has she picked/plucked out her feathers? Over the lump? Has she been eating? Are her droppings normal? Are there any other abnormal symptoms?

She died last night... Thank you for your response. :😓

My condolences for your loss. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
