My 8 month old sun conure is nearing the end of his first moult; he is also a very petite sun nearing only 104-108g. He is now presenting with lighter grey streaks in his beak. I am getting ready to take him to his avian-only vet but that wil cost me an average of 500 dollars. Do I need to be worried about this condition?
FYI I take this bird to the avian vet every 3mo; he has been on Harrison's diet since weaned,pellets consists of 80% diet, eats teaspoon fruit/day, tablespoon high vit A veggies/day.
