this is the picture of one eye
Hi I have a black capped and I noticed today that my black capped Conure has pinkish under-eye (both eyes)on the featherless normally white area around his eye.
He seems fine otherwise , looks happy and talks, sings eats properly and washes regularly he is less than a year old and does not show any sign of sickness.
I examined the area with my hand(clean of course) and it doesn't seem to be painful, or swollen (it's only a bit shiny)he is getting lots of new feathers around his eye and therefore has been scratching that area recently and its hard to tell if the pink spots are the cause or consequence of the scratching.
should I be concerned?
