Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Greetings, I am Dr. Pat. I have worked with birds for many years. I will do my best to help you.

Can you share a photo?

Is the cere thickened overall, or is there a discreet growth? Can you describe it more specifically.

Are the ear feathers matted with fluid, crust, other substances? Can you see the actual ear hole?

Get back with me with a few more details.
