Budgie cere colour change
I have an adult female budgie who I took to the avian vet as she was in breeding cnditon and was excessvely pullng out her chest and abdomen feathers.
He anaesthatsed her and implanted a hormone implant in to the the left hand side of her chest. This was mid January.
In the past week I have noticed that her cere no longer shows breeding conditon which is good, but the cere is rapidly going white. It appears to be getting whiter daily.
Is there a reason to be concerned and visit an avian vet or is this normal?
I have never heard of a white cere on a budgie before.
Also she has stopped her picking since the beginning of this month, and most feathers have come back, but some ar still missing and I can't see any signs of pins or new growth. She has small bald patches.
Will these just take some time or could there be something underlying?
