IMG_1443.JPG IMG_1380.JPG IMG_1377.JPG hello! i just recently adopted two female budgies and when I got home I had noticed that one of the budgies cere looked funny almost like it was rotting off? it's open on the top so she can breathe fine and seems to be acting normal. Can anyone help me know what's up? I don't have a vet near by. IMG_1443.JPG IMG_1380.JPG IMG_1377.JPG

It looks pretty normal to me. Female budgie's ceres get a waxy build up when hormonal. Or, it could be hyperkeratosis. I don't think the condition causes any pain, it's simply an unusual amount of build up on the cere.

Hopefully, it may "molt off" and with a healthy diet once her cere "regrows" it'll appear normal?
