Better to be safe than sorry, but I have seen the feathers on both sides by his BEAK get this greenish tint. I do suspect that it is the lettuce I feed him atleast once or twice a day, but wanted to be sure it isn't something I should be extra worried about. He isn't acting different, he's still only a month or so new but he is starting to get extra comfortable and beginning to be himself so he is now comfortable enough to eat whatever I hang in his cage, please look at the pictures I provided and let me know what you think. Also, is this cere looking to be a boy? I think it is but I could be wrong. Thanks!
these were taken right after an eating sesh too so I don't think its bad but I want to be sure
If you get a stain on your budgies feathers that is green after they have eaten something green, it is very likely to be the food they have eaten.
The same as some wooden budgie toys are dyed and the dye can rub off onto your budgie.
There's no reason to be concerned, but perhaps you could familiarise yourself with some of the forum's stickies so as not to cause panic for yourself.
Additionally, please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.
These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
