Cockatiel has something in corner of his eye

IT looks like a seed hull in the corner of his eye! His other eye is normal. No other signs of sickness? He has molted 2 times in the last 3 months, but nothing seems strange. I saw the "thing" on his eye at christmas, and thought he would scratch it out now Im wondering if is something else?

Cockatiel with something in eye
by: Tracie

Since Dr B can not examine your bird, he will not be able to answer this for you. I know that he answered a very similar question recently though.

Dr B suggests that you encourage your bird to bathe, as that will allow any seed hull or debris to fall out of the eye if that is what is wrong.

If this doesn't happen by tomorrow, then you need to take make an appointment with an avian vet. Eye infections are not easy on birds, and if something is stuck in the eye this is a possibility. If it is a disease, then you certainly need it to be looked at also.

Let us know how it goes.
