Hello,

Thank you so much for your time. I'm really worried about my baby.

Yesterday I noticed yellow crust around the eye corners of my budgie for both eyes. He's around one year old, otherwise healthy and playful. I'm worried that this might be mites or a fungal infection which may lead to infection of the lungs and brain, etc.

If anyone has ever encountered this or has any information please share your insights with me! It's been hard finding an avian vet so I want to try forums first.

Thank you so much truly!

I have attached a picture but my budgie's eyes look just like this:

I see a few pinnies so this nay only be a buildup of dander sticking around his moist eyes. However it could be an early sign of feather mites.
You should take him to an avian vet. We can't diagnose or prescribe - even a vet wouldn't be able to diagnose from photos. We could keep saying it could be this or it could be that but that won't help him get better.
