I had a baby blue front in the past that had this same appearance . The Amazon seem to develop well other then was on the small side like a white fronted amazon .

The Pair of Sun Conures I bought from some one as proven . The first 2 eggs they laid for me fertile , but did not hatch .. The second clutch one hatched . The baby has the larger head It appears as though the brain could be swollen or the skull is just deformed . The eyes also bulge out in what I do not consider normal .. What would cause this ??

Baby bird looks normal

This bird looks normal to me. May be a little stunted.

Baby bird with big eyes and head

I will pass this along, but honestly you need to find out sooner than Dr B will probably answer.

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.
