I'm sorry I know you're worried but i'm still not sure where you mean, are they on her flesh, or blending into her legs, are they symmetrical, or in a line, or just random, can you see them? Do their look part of her body, did you just feel them? I don't know what they could be, i'm just trying to narrow down a location and idea of what they are like so that others may know. I wonder if you are talking about an area near the vent?

Hi Jojo
One of mine is all for my partner even though I'm the one that Feeds her and cleans the cage etc it's Sod's law haha Aussie sounds adorable, as for the eating their is a lot of people on here who can help you with that also on the diet section their is a list of safe foods and some really good recipes you could try with your Aussie, 2 of mine were on seeds when I got them I've just converted them to pellets I also give them fresh veg and fruit .. She won't starve so don't worry .. Looking forward to seeing some pics of your Aussie sounds a right little cutie x

Hi Jojo, this sounds like normal if its what I think it is.  Kind of underneath my parrot he has two long cone like lumps, its the bottom of their breast (or other bone) and my coconut has had this since I got him six years ago.  Its not very nice when you touch it as it feels like there is hardly any skin over the top of it.  I noticed it when I had to wipe his bum one day!!! the things you do for your parrot eh! if its that, then that is normal.

that's what i thought Samui, that's why i asked if it was near the vent, i've noticed with Yvie when we're playing flip over there's some horrible feeling bone/lumps there. I think it's probably just that.

Aww she's a cutie, they bring all sort of worry but it's outweighed with the pleasure they bring!
