    Feather Cysts

    Hi! Could you comment on my pictures (which I don't see how to upload so please see the links) if I'm dealing with a feather cyst? My budgie has the french moulding condition so I think it is more likely his messed up feathers could be injured? He also falls often resulting in broken blood feathers as he cannot fly. Otherwise he is a happily chirping bird with good appetite. The presumed cyst is bleeding from one part and close to it I can see probably the ingrown feather as there is a bit darker spot and something visible under the skin of the lump. I started adding aloe vera gel over the lump. I am curious about lancing the cyst mentioned here above, could I have some tips perhaps? I also came across other websites and forums where there was suggested to tie the lump with a cotton so it would fall off in some days or a week. As I'm not a native English speaker it gets me a bit confused..did they mean cotton thread and how exactly should the lump be tied? Would you recommend it in my case? And one lady removed bits of feathers with sterilized tweezers and gave colloidal silver to her bird that should be acting as a natural antibiotic. The amount for budgies was mentioned to be best at 3-5 ppm but here I could find one containing 10 ppm. Should this get mixed with some proportion of water or you wouldn't recommend to use it? And usage of tweezers..would you use them? Hope you can cast some light and big thanks in advance! https://www.dropbox.com/s/lajaam632x0u02s/IMGP0015.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ddseffwdbjslur9/IMGP0023.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/2ayhm8gxs88w87j/IMGP0024.JPG?dl=0
