Hi guys, I have two budgies, Kiwi (male - green) and Winter (female - blue) and I've noticed recently that they have flaky ceres. I know that the cere is supposed to look waxy and slight flaking is okay but I was wondering if this looks concerning to any of you?

I was wondering after you’ve seen this if it is anything to be concerned about and if so then could you suggest something? They seem to be really active, they fly around the room, eat well and I haven’t really seen any changes in their behaviour since I’ve spotted this but I’m still cautionary. If you could help then thank you!

I haven't seen this. What do their feet look like? Do they eat a balanced diet or are you (like me) still trying to convince them to? Do they bathe/ shower regularly? Mine like spray bottle shower mists.

BirdWorld, when does the flaking occur? I'd like to be prepared. :)
