Christopher,
It appears that Daffodil has hyperkeratosis.
This may be due to a deficiency of Vitamin A in her diet or may be due to the fact that her body does not metabolize the Vitamin A she gets adequately.
You should have her seen by an Avian Vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

The Avian Physical Examination

Understanding Avian Laboratory Tests

Nutritional Diseases

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

'Morning FaeryBee - well then there is one. Thank you for the reply regarding the suggestion about hyperkeratosis on Daffodil's cere.

However, she will have to fend for herself on that in the wild. She escaped during cage cleaning, leaving Antoinette behind. I know most people tend to clip their budgie's wings. I've always opted not to clip as I've seen the consequences of a flightless bird not being able to escape danger. However, there is the flip side of escape, which is exactly what happened.

Hopefully Antoinette will adjust; she'll hopefully do fine since separation has happened before (re-homing Mr. Aloha last year).

Christopher, I’m sorry that Daffodil has escaped! It’s always important to assure all doors are closed before cage cleaning.

However, there are ways to try and recover her. The method that will reach a wider audience is by posting for a lost pet online. Craigslist, lost pet Facebook pages, etc. You can also post flyers locally. Good luck..
