Default Foot peeling or bumblefoot

Dear talk budgies member:
I feel a bit confused. My budgie is on his ideal weight but it seems as though he is developing bumblefoot. His cage only has wood perches. I discard plastic ones. He plays and sings. It looks like his foot skin were peeling. If you could check the picture attached I would be really thankful.
Thanks

Hi Damag

Perches are a main cause of bumblefoot, but not the only cause.
Take a look at this article:
Symptoms & Treatment of Bumblefoot in Parrots - Hari

I notice that you also made a post about a budgie with eye problems.
I wonder, could both these conditions have the same nutritional cause?
In the above article it mentions vitamin A deficiency, I also think I recall an article that mentioned vitamin A involvement in tear production, I can't seem to find it now but it is mentioned here:
Common Eye Disorders in Birds | petMD. Dry eyes would be irritating.

What (honestly) is your bird's diet like?

Are you using natural wood perches of varying diameters or are you using wooden dowel perches. It makes a big difference...

Julia has given you excellent information with regard to pressure sores as well as mentioning a Nutritional Deficiency may be affecting your other budgie's eye.

The perches I use are similar to this one from the picture attached. I'm reading the links Julia has shared.

Thanks for the links you have shared. I'm reading them right now. My birds diet is basically seed, sometimes I have them Harrison pellets, spinach, lentils, beans, celery.
I used to give them some vitamins in her water but I stopped doing that, maybe I should give them that.
I don't give them fruit I tried but they are more into seeds scarcely pellets and sometimes vegetables. They might have a vitamin deficiency and I need to work on that

I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of a healthy diet.
Nutritional deficiencies cause many illnesses.
This has been discussed multiple times throughout the forums.

Please read the information in the attached links:

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-diet...ur-budgie.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...-diseases.html


Please combine any additional questions regarding your budgies' health into one thread rather than starting multiple threads.
