Male Budgie cere turned brown
by: Tracie

Our avian vet just answered a question last week about this. He said that in males, color change to the cere is not normal. In nearly all cases it is an indication of testicular cancer.

Please take your bird to an avian vet ASAP for a checkup. You should be feeding your bird 80% pellets and 20% healthy treats. Our vet recommends Harrison's pellets for Budgies.
