Default Sore near the tail

my budgie has what seems to be a sore near the end of her body(where the tail feather starts) i'm not very good with bird knowledge but it seems over the past few days she has lost a lot of energy. cant fly anymore and has a hard time standing on her branch.

i know it might be to late, but if there is someway to help her i'd like to try. she also doesnt seem to be passing her bowls cleanly and i had to clear it off her body today.

i dont know where she got the sore from but it looks like it was a wound that has no scabbed over.

any help would be great. also, taking her to the vet would cost a lot and not sure if its worth it with her current state.

A sore? You should check the enitre cage for any pointy and sharp areas. The only other thing I could think of is that it could be a tumour. She doesn't seem to be doing too well. You may want to consult with an avain vet . It's better to treat the bird earlier rather than later. Birds don't get better from illness on their own. Once they're sick, they go downhill...and some very fast Also, it costs less if you bring them in earlier...once they're really sick you are going to have to pay a lot more for the treatments, tests, medications etc.

Sounds like she needs to go to the vet
could be a tumor

I just took one of my Tiels to the vet earlier this month when I noticed a lump on her back down toward the tail - about where their preen gland is and noticed she was missing a whole lot of feathers there (her wings usually cover that part up so i didn't see how many were actually missing until I held her(against her will) and spread her wings open)

The vet said it was nothing more than a Pimple (a birdie pimple actually is what he said lol)

he cleaned it cut it just a bit and used tweezers to drain it out and got the core out - put a E-collar on her and she's fine now Feathers are growing back where the lump was is healed all up and its not there any more, can't tell there was ever a lump there and it was about the size of a half of a pea so it wasn't small - just in an area that isn't visible very often just happen to see it one day when she was flapping to get her balance back while she was on a friends shoulder (he moved a bit too fast for her)

thanks for your thoughts.

I'm not a huge bird person, but she was fun. always entertained me and my friends. Her name was Geraldine, my friend and I named her after a girl we heard sing the National Anthems at the Toronto Airshow since she always had a jolly tune to her songs.

it hit her fast, or at least i failed to notice a huge difference in her attitude. if i was home more maybe i could've taken notice earlier since her cage is right beside my computer. I didnt really think it would bother me when she finally passed on but her being in the basement(being where my room is and where i spend most of my time with friends) i kinda got use to having her around.

she looked just like

Its very hard for us to tell when budgies aren't feeling well. They hide it until the last possible minutes. Its not your fault!

RIP Geraldine
