My Budgies Eye

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

A few days ago I noticed that my budgie has developed a small lump next to his eye. I've tried to inspect what it could be, at first I thought it was just a small feather as he had been malting a bit lately but when I took this photo and zoomed in on it I could see it definitely wasn't. Does anyone know what it could be? And if so is there anything I can do to treat it?

Greatly appreciated :)

Hi luke87, I have a bird that had a similar lump and it was caused by scaly face mite. He never got the signs of the mite on his beak only on his legs and near his eye. I treated him with ivermectin and it cleared up.

Thank you for the reply! Do you know whereabouts you can buy ivermectin? I have a bird mite and lice spray but I'm not sure if it is the same thing? Cheers

I went to the pet shop today to buy the solution and described the condition of my bird to the lady. She said it was best to wait and see if it got any worse because she thought it wouldn't be scaly face mite as the beak was not affected. I bought it anyway just incase and got home and put some on the area, and I noticed there was some small lumps just like the one next to his eye around his mouth under all the feathers. I'm glad I just bought it instead of listening to her
