Bald patch on budgie

by stacey welch

I have recently noticed a bald patch above my 1 year old budgies right wing. He is acting, eating and drinking the same as before so it doesn't seem to have effected him. However, he hasn't been molting and it's not through picking them on on his own so I'm worried.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Dr. B says that missing feathers requires an avian vet visit for the bird. There is not a way to diagnose this complicated issue without seeing the bird in person.

This could be serious and contagious to other birds. Please take your bird to an avian vet soon.
