Hi orion have you looked at reena's other posting? reena's budgie if I'm not mistaken has a tumor on the tummy...I hope eveything goes well...that is why reena's budgie has a collar...if you read closely on what she has said..

I'm sure it is frustrating for her not to be able to get at her feathers, but it is necessary under the circumstances....a little frustration..or bleed to death.
i just thought it would be helpful to point that out smile
