We have four budgies, two of them babies that we got about two months ago. The youngest is about 14 weeks old now and I noticed today that she seems to have plucked many feathers from around her vent. Other than that she looks healthy. Her feathers are shiny and clean, her eyes are shiny and alert, she eat a and plays with toys and the other budgies. And now she's finally getting quite vocal even though she didn't quite figure the singing out yet.
I booked an appointment with a vet but they couldn't book me in till next Tuesday, so I was hoping someone has an idea as to what is going on.

The budgie may have mites causing the plucking around her vent.

If it turns out that one budgie has mites, all the budgies will need to be treated for them.

Please be sure to update us in this thread after her vet appointment to let us know what the vet says about the problem.

I took her to the vet today and thankfully it's not mites. The vet said it is just a bad irritation of the skin. When we got this budgie she was in the pet shop for less than a week and so she was very stressed out when we took her home. Back in October she had a little diarrhea because of that but it cleared up within a few days. That irritated the skin to the point where Sky plucked some of her feathers. Now every time those feathers are starting to grow back it itches her and she scratches.
We got a cream that should bring the whole inflammation down within a week and that should hopefully cause her to scratch less. When the feathers regrown I was told to mist the rear end with water to make it less itchy for her.
Fingers crossed it'll work.

When you mist her, do it with a very light mist. Please don't squirt water directly on her.
Squirt a bit above her and allow the mist to settle down onto her.

I'll be looking forward to your next update in this thread regarding her condition.

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
