Quaker Parrot scratched eye
A few days ago I noticed my quaker parrot's feathers were not laying down properly just to the right of his ear/below his eye. I took a closer look and noticed he had a scab over where he had scratched himself.
This morning he took a bath and it looked really red, but not bleeding. This afternoon it looks bloody and very irritated... he is acting completely normal and will let me hold him to look at it as you can see from the picture. I am very worried about him and am not sure if it is very serious or not.
