My alexandrine parakeet is nearly 2 months old and I hand feed him.

He has 3 yellow dots on his nose... Can you please let me know if you know what it is :)

Fading away
by: Anonymous

Many many thanks... The yellow dots have faded away but still a little bit left.. If it doesn't come off in 2 days I will for sure take him to an avian vet.

Thanks for your time, very useful website.

If I have any other problems I will contact you.

Bird with yellow spots on nare
by: The Avian Vet

This could be food. But it could be abscesses or ingrown feathers, or other possibilities. You should have him examined by an avian veterinarian.

Yellow spots
by: Anonymous

I can't post a picture because my pic is too big but just beside his " nose hole" on both his left and right side especially his left... There is yellow dots but I think it could be that he has scratched himself and has a scar or something.... I don't know how to make my pic smaller on my ipad.

Many many thanks.

Please post a picture and explain if you mean the nares, the beak or what you mean by "nose" since people use different words to describe their birds.
