Hi! This is actually my first post on this forum but I have a question that has been stressing me for some time now.
One of my 3 budgies, Bubbly, has started to lose feathers around his eyes and above his cere within the past week; which could be molting being he is around the age that my first budgie had molted but I am still concerned. Maybe it's because of his color that I notice it more than I did on my first budgie, but I am nonetheless concerned. He's still extremely playful and loud, and hasn't shown any concerning behavior. If anyone can help me figure this out, please do.
Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.
These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
You've been given great advice above. It's likely that your little one is going through a "Miserable Moult".
Be sure to read through the links provided above, which include the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

and Princess Mallorn!
