Hey guys! Today was the first time I misted Ollie (not a fan!) but I noticed a scab on his right wing after he was wet. Is this from a lost blood feather? Do I need to be worried or do anything for him? He is not babying it at all and still flaps both wings and gets around normally. Thank you!!!

It looks to me like just a patch of exposed skin and some feathers that still have a bit of pin sheath but I can’t really tell because the photos are a bit blurry.

He is not a fan of the camera yet! It was tricky to get pictures at all without getting too close and scaring him. I will monitor for now. You don't think it is anything to be concerned about at this time?

That doesn't look too bad. One of my baby lovebird came with a serious scab on her wing (when she was just over 10 days old), and it never healed properly. She still can't fly properly! She's a bit like a bird-version of Nemo, with his bad fin... Thankfully, however, your budgie's scab is no where near that bad, and it shouldn't affect his/her flight when he/she heals or grows up! Just monitor it and try to make sure that it doesn't get infected or anything!

Thank you very much for the feedback! It hasn’t seemed to bother him or affect his mobility. I will monitor closely! Should I discontinue baths until it is gone?
