Hi I'm katie. I have a 3year old african I recently inherited. He had a lump near his eye. I've been told it looks like a calcium build up. I'm going to get him in the vets soon just wanted some input. Any experts on here? X

Sorry I can't offer any advice as i've not experienced this, it looks a bit red which makes me wonder if it's some sort of infection? Definitely best to get him to the vet, make sure it's an avian vet, a regular vet won't be any good.

I just wanted to say welcome, How did you inherit him? He's gorgeous, what's his name?

His name is Jack he's e years old so still a baby. We inherited him from a family member who is sick and can no longer care for him. We have birds already so they asked us to take him on. We've only had conures before so a grey is new to us... We are still bonding with him and building trust at the moment. Yes I'm going to get him in the vets next week xx

Hi Katie

Jack is a little star, welcome to the site please let us know how you get on at the avian vets hopefully they can get to the bottom of what it is.
