Yellow scaling under wing

by Izzie
(South Australia )

Hi, my parrot has been losing feathers. I have taken him to the vet and the vet said he was healthy. I have recently realised that under only one of his wings there is this yellow scaling in an area. I am quite worried and not sure what this means.

Thank you.

Bird with scaling under wing
by: Tracie

Did you take the bird to an avian vet? Did you call back the vet you took the bird to, and point out the scaling was only under one wing?

Without an exam, there just isn't any way of telling what this is over the Internet.

You can't treat what you don't know is wrong, and you can't get a diagnosis or treatment without seeing an avian vet.

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.
