Default Good Morning from Sunny

Someone mentioned I hadn't posted many pictures of Sunny so I made sure I got some pictures this morning before breakfast.

These aren't great, so I'll try and do better later on.

Sunny has a grey patch on her belly.


And is a pale yellow all over.




Also, in the first picture you can clearly see her slightly deformed toe. She does just fine with it though.

Your Sunny is beautiful!
I do see the deformity is on her big toe, she was either born with it or has developed it as a very young chick on the nest. This is why we must do constant nest checks and correct the position of the little ones' feet and toes when needed in order to avoid these issues from potentially happening.
On large clutches, the older siblings can easily trample on the youngest chicks, their weight and the mother's weight combined while sitting on the nest can contribute to the development of these small disabilities and so can the excess poop built up on the feet prevent them from growing and developing properly.

Since your Sunny's toe is resting inwardly and sideways, her toenail isn't naturally filed and you may need to do regular nail trims on her.

It's a shame that her breeder was neglectful or lacked knowledge in this area, but other than that she is a very sweet bird (for a female).
I'm all prepared to do a nail trim when needed. I'm keeping an eye on her to see when I need to do it.

I'm sure you will do what's best for your Sunny and will cater to her needs, you are an excellent budgie momma!

My lovebird Nico has a very similar deformity on his foot and his big toe rests just like your Sunny does. On his particular case (his foot has other slight disabilities besides the big toe), I have found out he does very well with his slightly bigger toenail and in fact he uses it for extra support when climbing the cage's bars or even climbing the curtains which he loves to do when having out of cage time.
His one longer nail doesn't get in the way nor does it get stuck, he uses it in a way to prevent it from happening. Of course I give it a little trim every now and then when I find it's the most appropriate time according to Nico's general comfort while perching and his ability to carry on with his daily activities.

Sunny is a very cute little girl! I'm glad her foot isn't causing her problems.

Sunny is a gorgeous little girl!
The gray patch on her belly is extremely cute.
Thank you for sharing her pictures with us today.

I love her expression in the first picture -- she looks like, "Wow! you are making a thread all about ME?!"

I think Sunny is pretty cute, though she has a really serious expression which I didn't manage to capture in any of these, but I shall try and get one. She looks angry, possibly murderous. I'd say her name is the least suited to all my birds, just from expression alone.
I love her little belly patch myself.

Sunny is a cutie!

I am interested to see her "mad face", because Duckie has been known to wear an expression that fits your description from time to time.

Sunny is such a pretty little character! She sounds like a very silly little budgie
