Default Male budgie’s cere is flaky?

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

I agree with Star - please get Scout's cere checked out next week and let us know how the vet visit turns out.

Best wishes!

I also agree with the previous posts, please make sure you specifically ask the vet about the cere and a hormonal imbalance.
