    I have done PolyViSol,yogurt, electrolytes. She now has a lump on the side of her neck and there is no improvement. the lump feels like a cyst would on a dog. . Should I give it up and cull her? And how do I do it in the most zen Buddist way - I am a total wuss.

    More update: Lump was food - but balance issues the same. The other bird who was a little off and was with her is fine and I put her back in with the others.

    She does not appear to be suffering, except for the hard time moving - she gets to her food and water and I just gave her some more yogurt and she was a pig. Now she is asleep.

    So the lump was probably her crop, which is normal. What are the balance issues? How old is she?
