You remember in my last topic when One of my pigeons had a tumor?

Well... The tumor has not falling off yet, when will it?

You Know that pigeons Head's are very smooth right? because they have feathers that you can't tell that overlap. It just looks like that is the color of there head. Well the pigeon that has the tumor is now missing feather on her head it looks like!!!! Her head isn't smooth like the rest of them. Also I did notice that my other pigeons chase her around the flight cage sometimes, and when my other pigeons go near her she shakes! Is that normal? Are they fighting with her? What should I do?

I think the best thing to do is to bring the pigeon inside your house and put him/her in a cage where you are able to closely monitor the bird....how much the bird is eating and pooping. Have you checked inside the mouth for any yellow spots?
More pictures would be helpful of the bird as well as pictures of the area affected.

I read in another post that sometimes the first indication of a tumor forming is a clump of feathers that look out of place, so there is the danger that she may have more tumors on her, or appearing now.
It is also the time of year for the to replace most of their feathers, and three of mine have very untidy heads at the moment, as the old feathers have fallen out and the new ones are still growing.
Either way, I totally agree with Charis' recommendations. If you take her indoors you'l be able to check and monitor her better, and I hope she gets well soon.

Shaking usually means either excitement or nervousness. Some birds are just more nervous than others, but we can't rule out the possibility that she's being bullied -- sickly birds usually are.

It looks like the bird is molting so until the new feathers come in, her head won't look smooth.

If the other birds are chasing her, remove her and bring her inside where you can observe her and keep her warm. If it is indeed a temporary tumor, which is difficult to tell you for sure from a picture,it could take a few weeks for it to dry up and fall off. In the meantime, if the tumor should get nicked, it could bleed so it is all for the best to keep her away from the others.
Also, they could be chasing her because she is the only female and each is trying to win her as his own.

Great job Great decision!

Her head looks okay, apart from the fact that many of her feathers are not full grown, but if you're worried you could feel her head gently, to see if there are any growths. Must be gentle, as growing feathers are sore.

Wanna see how untidy pigeons can look when they're moulting? Look at this:

I don't know what to say about that. Maybe it is something different than a temporary tumor. Honestly....I can't tell from the pictures you have posted.
