quacker parrot just one eye

my quacker parrot's eye is red and slightly puffy. How can I help treat this. Not sure whether he scratched his own eye with his claws, or whether this was the result of bickering with his mate. This bird can bite pretty hard.

Quaker parrot with puffy eye

It is possible that the bird has a seed hull or something in it's eye. Provide fresh water for no longer than 3 hours for it to bathe in and see if this helps. (You do not want to have dirty water in the cage, this can cause bacterial infections)

If bathing doesn't help, then 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.
