First, I appreciate all the resources available- and I have looked at every sticky here (I think!) but I am still a little worried about my baby, Ringo.
Ringo is about 9 mo old and is very energetic.
When we bought him, his cere was blue, waxy and very clear.
(Ringo is the blue and white baby,
while his buddy Cheddar is the yellow Lutino.)
Recently his cere has gone pink and I am thinking "he" may be a she.
Ringo's cere has become a little dry looking and I started to worry about mites. I see no white bumps, nor "tunneling", just more of a dry scaling. After investigating on here, I am thinking it may be breeding condition.
Ringo and Cheddar both chew everything in sight all the time anyway, and are both very vocal budgies, so its hard to tell if this behavior has changed.
I would prefer not to spend money going to the vet if I can get advise here- but of course I will if necessary! (I'd just prefer to spend it on new toys for my lil babes!)
Can anyone with an expert eye advise?
Thank you in advance.
