    Does his nostril look concerning?

    Hi everyone! Today I noticed my bird’s left nostril looking a little different. He’s been acting completely normal with no discharge around his nares or watery poops, so I was wondering if it looks like a cause for concern? The vet stresses him out a LOT but I’ll definitely be booking a...

    Unsure if this is a normal beak appearance...

    Hey all, So Chewy paid a visit to the vet last month and all seemed well. I had them file his beak because there was a bit of a top layer that had developed on it.

    Urgent Budgie's cere peeling off?

    My budgie flew into the window repeatedly. His cere seems to be peeling off? A white layer had separated from it. He seems fine, like nothing out of the ordinary happened. What should I do? There are no avian vets in the area, so I'm hoping it's not that serious.
