GCC has a reddish tinge in the white rings around his eyes
(Marysville, WA, USA)
My GCC has a reddish tinge in the white rings around his eyes. What could it be? He's had this for a few months now, it doesn't seem to be getting any worse and he acts healthy--eating, playing, etc., as he normally does. He is, however, sometimes making a kind of a snuffing noise a lot thru his opened beak and nostrils. Don't know if it's related, but just wondering if anyone has seen the reddish tinge in the white skin around the eyes before or if I should be worried about it.
I've had him over a year, and he was about 6 months when I got him. He eats the same food the parrot shop where I bought him recommended, the ZuPreem blend for small parrots. Could it be the red bits in the food have a color that is affecting that area?
