My budgie's cere's color has changed drastically
My budgie Skye used to have a light pink cere but recently it's changed to an orangy-brown. I figured that she's probably just maturing but she's a recessive pied blue budgie and I wasn't sure if they experience that too. So is she fine and just getting older or what? :blue pied:

Hi there, if your budgie is a female, her cere would turn a browny colour and go crusty when she goes into breeding condition. That is completely normal, but if you have a male also you need to take steps to prevent breeding.

Skye is currently going into breeding condition as evidenced by the change in her cere.

Make sure you do not have anything in the cage that she could use as a nesting site.
Limit her daylight hours to no more than 8 hours per day and rearrange her cage more frequently to ensure she does not get broody. :)
