Hello everyone
We got a new baby budgie today and have just noticed his feet are a bit flaky. Does this look normal or does it warrant a vet visit? He was from a breeder, birds all looked healthy and happy.

Have attached photos thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your little budgie boy, he is adorable!

I do see the the flaky skin and there are no signs of mites in the foot nor on his beak/cere and eye areas.
To me it looks like your budgie has likely scraped his foot on a very rough surface while at the breeder's and in the process the very delicate scales on his feet were a little damaged (very young budgies do have more delicate skin on their feet).
It's even possible this was due to the removal of a leg band who was bothering him.
The skin on the foot will regenerate itself with time. It's good that there is no visible bruising or swelling on the area and the scraping was superficial.
Your budgie is just fine and soon his foot will be smoother in appearance.

Thank you so much Aluz I feel so much better now. We have had budgies before but haven't seen this so was just worried! Do you think he's definitely a boy as well? We are pretty sure but doesn't hurt to get a second opinion

I'm ignorant about the possible flakiness cause but my immediate thought was it's where a leg band would have been. Very glad aluz confirms that it might well be!
Good wishes for a quick clear up.

You're most welcome, Lisa!
And yes, he definitely is a boy. The cere has a really nice and uniform deep pinkish colour.
