Default Hydes face

I checked it out the other day it looked like a small portion of his face was molting (which was odd I seen 4 dots similar to the ones when they get them all over from the karetin dots...if I'm remembering that properly or spelling it right) and they where pretty uniformed so I didn't think too much of it...kinda how when they're molting that it doesn't look to random

I checked the other boys over Hyde is the only one having this going on they haven't been over preening beyond what they have always done but clearly Hyde has developed a bald spot it isn't scaly or scabby looking

I did post about this before wondering if this could have been a result of the fights that where going on but the previous picture wasn't to clear for what I was talking about so I just wanted to post an update to what's been going on with him

If this is normal I'm sorry but this doesn't seem normal and I'm wondering if I should just schedule him an appointment

When budgies go through a heavier moult, they can have bald spots especially in the forehead area near the cere: https://talkbudgies.com/articles-gene...e-molting.html

Whether Hyde got the bald spot through a moult (which is the most likely scenario) or through a fight (and in that case, the attacker bird must be separated from Hyde), the feathers in that area will eventually grow back.

Only if that specific area has been plucked countless times and over a large period of time by an aggressive budgie, the chances for regrowth to happen would be lower and Hyde could end up with that area of skin permanently visible.

You can take Hyde for a wellness check at the avian vet's.
Still, the missing feathers will not miraculously appear after the vet visit.
It takes time for feathers to grow back.

Becca,

It does sound as if little Hyde is experiencing a "miserable" molt.
The link aluz provided should be of some help to you.

Having him checked by the Avian Vet is a good option to ensure he's doing well and to put your mind at ease.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying 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 recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Best wishes at the vet visit.
Please be sure to update us on Hyde's condition after the appointment.

Apparently Hyde was just having a rough molt and it has been a while it was kinda funny because shortly after everything he got more black dots and then pin feathers...I guess I feel kinda silly they don't molt all the time this is only Hyde's second molt in my care and it feels like its been forever since I got him so when their looks suddenly alter it can be shocking LOL

Yes though Hyde's fine

That's great, I'm glad Hyde is growing back his feathers!
It's true that moults can vary not just in intensity but also in pattern (moulting in specific body sections, heavier or light moults with varying degrees).
