"We adopted a rescued parakeet on Feb. 2nd. A neighbor found it on his roof. It didn't fly well, so he was able to catch it. Temperatures outside were between 30s and 40s! So the bird came to us. At first, we thought it was female because the cere was brown. We kept it in our office and kept the temp in that room at about 85 with a humidifier running. The bird was fluffy and quiet for about a week -- no sneezing or discharges from any ends, few feathers shed, not too much scratching. Nothing out of the ordinary, anyway. A few days ago, the brown fell off of one side of the cere, making it look tranny-like, until the next day, when the other side of the brown on the cere came off, leaving a mostly-white cere, lightly tinged in blue. So what was that brown stuff? A healing injury? The bird has sunny eyes and a solid yellow forehead, so we figure it's about 6-8 months old, but, with a white w/tinges of blue cere, can we also guess it's a male? Or do we have to just wait and see?"
