I've just recently brought home my first and only budgie, called winston
He's been home around 3 weeks and is starting to settle in.
If I rub his belly, he jumps on a stick and flys around the room every other day.
Appears to be happy, not chirping much yet though.
Anyway, i've noticed this morning he was scratching a lot! And I saw him rub his head on the cage.
His cere looks a little crusty and his beak too.
Can't see mites moving at the bottom of the cage. Took a video and photo for you to have a look, as some of you may be able to see if this is normal.
Not sure what's normal as haven't had a budgie before.
Thanks in advance!
