Default Skin Rash

Dear fellow Budgie parronts,

Before I mention the problem, know that I already visited a bird-vet last week, been in touch with him this week, and will take my toffee baby again later this week to him.

So, I have setup a small, wooden nesting box attached to the side of their cage. One day I notice a teeny weeny red patch, feather loss area on his scalp. I thought it was because the area was rubbing against the nesting box entrance, therefore, some sort of rash.

The area kept getting bigger... Picture 1

The vet: Apply neosporin and as long as it is dry, no infections, let it heal on its own.

Two weeks later, the bald/red area keeps spreading!

Besides this issue, eating, sleeping, pooping is all normal.

What could it be?

It could be that the problem is not a bacterial one which would be why the Neosporin has not been effective. It may be something like ringworm or another skin condition that is not bacterial in origin. If the vet cannot identify by sight what the problem is he should be able to do a scraping of the area and test the particles.
You said you have nest box attached to the side of the cage, are you experienced in breeding budgies? It is not recommended that you breed unless you have taken the time do do a good deal of reading and learning about the special requirements and responsibilities of breeding. Your birds should be in top condition to breed and given the skin issue with this bird his condition is less than optimal.

First, please remove the nest box from your budgies' cage immediately.

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

An individual needs to have a good background in basic budgie care and then do extensive research into the proper breeding practices prior to making the decision to accept the responsibility of the commitment required for breeding responsibly and ethically.

Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members

With regard to the feather loss, Cody has given you excellent advice. Is the vet you are seeing an actual Avian Vet or, at minimum, an Exotic Pet veterinarian who has experience in dealing with small birds?
