  1. Hi Everyone Thanks for your replies. I'm going to do another examination and hopefully take a picture. I doubt that it's egg binding more like a benign lump/mass that has started to develop due to his/her age. I will keep you updated and of course visit a vet when possible.
  2. Hi Everyone Firstly apologies for not being on the forum for such a very long time, I'll try and do a post later in the week to explain why. Today whilst giving Star our 8 year old budgie a bath I noticed a small symmetrical lump between his/her legs just underneath the vent feathers which wasn't there a week ago. The skin looks stretched. Could this be a tumor, a fatty mass, an infection or possibly the formation of an egg. Star looks completely normal from the outside and is his/her happy normal self eating, drinking and playing normally. Droppings are very slightly more running then normal, vent feathers are stained but Star has always been like that. Star did have an unusual night a few days ago with a bit of fluid in his/her airsacks. Any suggestions then let me know. Many thanks
  3. So sorry to hear about this Bea, hope you and your other little ones are okay.

"And then eventually if there is a suspicion of infection or contact, then the best thing is to quarantine the cats." In extreme cases culling may have to be an option and the government will enforce the right to use these measures. http://www.wildbirds.com/protect_cats.htm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2937420.stm http://www.rspb.org.uk/gardens/advice/cats/index.asp
