sun conure eye ring developing dark patches
by Robin Switzer
dark section on eye ring on Sun Conure
Our sun conure appears to be in good health, but his formerly all-white eye rings have turned dark gray on the frontal portions of both eye rings, covering about 10% of one eye ring and 5% of the other.
It is discolored only, not raised or deformed, and his eyes otherwise seem fine. This change has occurred over the last month. At first I thought he had damaged the eye by crashing into his cage one day while flying in low light conditions, but now I see it in both eyes. Is this normal, if not, what could be the problem? Could it be from newspaper ink? Thanks.
