Missing feathers around beak

There is not a way to diagnose what is causing this, and if we could tell you exactly what is wrong, medication couldn't be prescribed over the Internet.

It could be mites, but if you have an indoor bird, and it didn't just come from a breeder or pet shop, then mites would be unusual. And you DON"T want to use over the counter treatments for mites.

Since you can't treat what you don't know is wrong, and you can't get a diagnosis or treatment without seeing an avian vet.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
