I have had my budgie Scout for about 5 and a half years and here cere has been consistently blue the whole time, so at this point I’m 99% sure he’s a male. Today I noticed that his cere is looking different. It seems to have a brown, flaky part to it. Should I be worried about this? I have to take him to the vet soon for a nail trim, so if it isn’t something urgent I can have it checked out in a week.
Yes, I'd ask the vet about it for sure. It could be a hormonal balance or some related condition, I can see that his cere does look blue like a male budgie and not like a female budgie out of condition.
It can wait until next week I'd say
and Princess Mallorn!
