The ends of my Green cheek's feathers are turning black
Looks worse than it is...but look at the edges of each feather you can see the black
The ends of my Green cheek's feathers are turning black...almost like ashes. Its almost like they are dying or rotting or were burned. I noticed it a week or so ago, thought it might be part of him molting. But after doing some research it doesn't seem like its quite time for that, and I also can't see any new feathers coming in. He is about 6 months old is all.
He doesn't seem to be in any pain, his mood has been happy and normal as well as his poops. I did change his food from Fiesta mix (recommendation from the people I bought him from ) to another seed mix called Nutri-diet or something like that? I know that pellets are better for him, and I have been incorporating those into his feed, but he hasn't taken to them yet so I have continued to give him seed.
Please help, I want to keep my guy healthy. Also, if you have any tips on getting him to get the pellets that would be great as well.
