Hello, love your website have a parakeet female about 5 years old with a cyst on the left wing.
Our avian vet was not too helpful only said it could be a feather cyst after I suggested it.
She does not seem uncomfortable but the cyst is getting bigger mostly pink with whatever color of feather appears any suggestions?
I’m not sure why your vet thinks it’s nothing – it will only grow larger. He or she is better equipped to remove it but you can take matters into your own hands.
Not for the faint of heart but this is how you can treat the feather cyst.
I advocate wearing gloves, keeping things clean with hydrogen peroxide, and dressing the wound with bird-safe Vetericyn Plus® Antimicrobial All Animal Wound and Skin Care.
Best of luck
