Default my male budgie has dark brown/black cere

Hello all, my male budgie has a pretty much black cere ive also noticed he isnt coming out the cage all of a sudden he will come out for 2 seconds when i put my hand in but then comes back in but i noticed my other budgie (female) they keep having a little fight but he will still sit there and churp away,

so is the black cere due to fighting? and why has he also just started not come out anymore he litterly just sits in 1 place all day


many thanks

Hi there,

Your budgie's cere/beak don't show signs of bruising from an attack.
For the correct diagnosis and treatment plan, you will have to book an appointment with an avian vet specialist. He may have an hormonal imbalance which is causing that abnormal change of colour. Another possibility would be testicular cancer, but hopefully it will not be the case.

If there is constant bullying done by your female budgie, in order to avoid an escalation of fighting that can end very badly, it's best that you house them on separate cages from now on.

Best of luck with your budgie, I hope his condition improves soon!

I agree with aluz. It is very important you take your male in to an Avian Vet for the proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma. This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

What diet are you feeding your budgies?
Are the two actually fighting or simply bickering the way budgies sometimes do?
