Unhappy Possible infection of cere?

I am extremely worried about Loop, my female budgie. I have noticed that her cere does not look good at all. It is swollen and crusty, and her nostrils have turned to different sizes. (Cere looks REALLY bad ) Loop also seems to be more lethargic lately. She lives with one male budgie, and he does not show any symptoms, but if this is a disease, it could spread to him too. I'll attach an image too.

Here is a picture

This hen is expressing a stage of readiness to breed. There appears to be a few tiny lumps which could be the start of scaley mites. This should be seen by an avian vet. In the meantime, just in case take a tiny drop of olive oil or sesame oil fro the kitchen stock. use fingertip or q-tip to gently rub on cere and beak, This could be old food-careful not to get in nose holes. do the same with feet and legs below feathers. This will only catch adult mites.the nymphs will hatch in 2 to 3 weeks. So you have a window of action before more mites if there are any will hatch. Make a vet apt and get an Ivermectin treatment. Birds that are not exposed to other outside birds or outside flights are less like to catch scaley mites, but do not let this go untreated. the picture is not as clear as needed to check. Mites are hard to see. so be safe and see your avian vet. Best wishes, Jo Ann

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Jo Ann has offered you excellent advice.
Remember if/when one budgie has scaly mites, all budgies need to be treated for them even if they are currently displaying no symptoms. So, when you take your pretty little female to the Avian Vet for her check-up, please be sure to tell him you have a male as well so you can get the medication needed to treat both.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
When you rely on unskilled individuals, you delay effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recover than it would have if you
seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Having your new budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

The reason your female's cere is so brown and crusty is because she is in breeding condition. Since you have a male as well, if you house them together you should be discouraging breeding.

I wouldn't add anything to what the other members just said Give us an update on her when you come back from the vet's ok? I hope it's nothing serious!
She is beautiful, by the way!

Hello and to Talk Budgies!

Your budgie is very cute--I agree that it does appear that she is in the early stages of scaly face mites and should be taken to an avian vet Let us know how the check up goes!

It's great to see you here on the forums, and keep in mind that if you can't find the answer to something after reading through the many helpful articles on here, you can always ask

Hope to see you around!
