I checked on Daisy this morning and saw a red spot on his head. Is this just molting or is there something wrong with his head?

He is moulting (I can see lots if pin feathers)...
That looks like dried blood. It could be a bloodfeather. But I'm not an expert.
Did he hit something/ crashed/ scratched his head on something sharp?
Is he eating and drinking?
Is he acting normal?
Is his weight normal?
Is his energy level normal/does he rest more?

Im not sure if he hit something or scratched his head as this happened overnight (he might’ve had a night fright and fell down). He’s acting completely normal, if not more energetic today, and eating/drinking the same as well.

This once happened to Oliver where he broke a pin feather on his head. I'd say she'd be fine

I can't get a photo at this time of night but Silva currently sports a pink band across his forehead where he's been rubbing his pinnies. It happens, it's nothing to worry about too much. The mark will be gone in a couple of weeks, unless Daisy does it again. Encouraging them to bathe more is the only thing we can do to really help them.

Oh wow that´s a lot of pinfeathers! :) A pinnie crown :queen:

Maybe you could offer a bath (or wet veggie leaves) for Daisy to help soften the pins so she can open them easier.

As for the blood spot, as others said, it´s likely she has banged a pinfeather but she will be fine :)

Thank you all so much for your answers! I do see him rubbing his head a lot on the perches, I’ll be sure to give him a bath and see if it helps him out a bit :)
