Welcome to Talk Budgies!

I have not experienced that before with my birds. Hold fire, I am sure someone will be along soon who can give you advice. I hope if it is a problem you get it sorted out.

Welcome to the forums!

There can be a few reasons that explain the baldness on the area and sinus infection could be one of them.

Does your budgie girl exhibit difficulty in breathing? This can be noticed by a pronounced, rhythmic tail bob and sometimes a wheezing sound while breathing.
Does she have wet sneezes and have you noticed a steep decrease on her appetite and energy levels? Has she been scratching her eye a lot and is the other eye also missing feathers?

From that pic I'm unable to tell if the area surrounding the eye is really swollen or not.To me it doesn't seem swollen, I also fail to see teary discharge from the eye. The nostrils also appear to be clear.
It's possible that the temporary baldness on that area is due to a moult, budgies also moult those tiny feathers surrounding the eyes.

Still, it's good to keep a close eye on your budgie, if you notice she is having discomfort on the area and she appears to be affected by it, then the best thing to do is to have her checked by an avian vet specialist, so that she is correctly diagnosed and treated.

Best of luck with your budgie girl!

Thank you so much Aluz!!

I was really worried... I had made many mistakes on the way... But i really love my birds and am really thankful for all your help.

1) The other eye is fine... the other eye seemed to have more feathers around it.

2) My girl is really stressed out. Even the slightest sounds freaks her out.

3) Actually 1 have 3 girls and 1 boy, the boy was just introduced... but i don't really think they bite each other or anything.

4) Also she is shedding and preening herself a lot. Nearly every time I see her she is pulling on her feathers. (I am worried she is picking on them)

5)There is a tail bob... but no wheezing sounds... but she is breathing rapidly (Probably stressed out)

6) Also she does this weird thing where, whenever my new boy sits next to her she stretches upwards and stays there. Like she wants to appear taller or something.

Thank you once again.

Priya,

Would you be able to provide us an update on your budgie's condition at this time?

Have you taken her to the Avian Vet?
