umbrella cockatoos face swollen 33 year old m
(Brunswick, Me, USA)
I noticed yesterday his face was puffy around one side of his beak and under his eye a little. It doesnt seem to bother him to bad but he has scratched at it a little and there is now a raw spot under his eye.
The day I noticed it I had gave him a bath and he went and sat under his heat lamp to dry. The swelling is on the side that always faces the heat lamp but it really doesnt look like a burn, its not red or discolered at all really.
Also once a mounth I wash him with soup under his feathers on his back only, and that was the day I did it. Iv had him a couple years and its never been a problem. He also sneezes once in a while and then right after pickes his nose but its only once in awhile.
