    I've noticed a growth on one of my bird's nose. It's near the base of her comb (pea) and comes down to her nostrils (see photos). I dont know what it is. Can anyone help?

    Have you looked at fowl pox? Not suggesting this is the problem,but you should look at symptoms. Could also be an infection,concern is that infection may spread,open her/his beak and look inside for anything unusual.

    Could it be canker, a fungal infection? Try doing a search on BYC on canker.
