Hopefully I'm worrying about nothing. Just came home and it seems Simmi has wee black 'points'(?) on his head, and a bit at the sides. He seems fine in himself, and so I'm hoping it's nothing serious and just maybe new feathers.But he's not a young budgie (9?years old maybe? I adopted him and was never given his exact age). So is it possible he's getting new, different coloured feathers, ie black ones, where they weren't before? I've attached thumbnails here. Sorry the quality isn't great.
Thanks.

There is no reason for worries, if you further inspect your Simmi you will realize those tiny black spots are in fact the tips of the pin feathers he has on his head and face. Soon the feathers will come out of those pinnies. :)
The future feathers will be the same colour as they were before.

You're welcome! :D
And yes, the tips can be black regardless if the budgie has white or yellow feathers on the head/face. The feathers will either be yellow or white.
The feathers that have the black striping, what I call the zebra pattern, will of course continue to be black. The same thing applies to the normal black markings on the back and wings according to the budgie's mutation.

Aw, thank you. I've passed on your compliment to Simmi. He thanks you, and says it takes a lot of work to look as good as he does. (Especially when you've one blue cheek, and the other is white!) But he doesn't mind as he thinks he's worth it....!:)):p:)
It's funny that you mention the one white and one blue cheeks, because my Lily has the exact same trait. Uncanny! I know he's got to love the attention as much if not more than we love giving it to him! He's gorgeous!:loveeyes:

Simmi should be loving this thread 'cause it's all about HIM! :giggle:

He's a very dashing and handsome fellow and I love his cute little face! :love:

Dear admirers

I've just read all your posts. I am truly flattered by all your attention and kind words.

Thank you.

Yours

Simmi aka Mr Handsome (especially when not in a molt...)

PS Is Lily single? She sure sounds like my kinda gal!! (But don't tell Jenni I said so!)

She might not be for long, but she hasn't settled down yet, so who knows? :giggle: I just posted a pic of her recently, in her signature pose. Simmi better hurry, though, Peatri has been courting her lately!
