No theres really nothing orange in his cage. It wasnt bright orange, it just looks more orange than I noticed when he was dry. I dunno...cause now that hes drying off it looks ok, still kinda orangeish though
You say you gave your bird a bath.. what did you do? Was it a mist spray.. was it in the shower.. was it in a bowl of water? Did you use a new towel with a print on it to where some of the dye could have rubbed off?
He's a white face pearl (I think thats what its called). I just sprayed him, and he does have some colored fruit pellets in his dish but I dont think that was it. It did seem less orange when he dried but both nares still have an orangy tint.
My singerboy gets an orange tint to his nose as well when he was wet. i was thinking maybe his nares were just an orangy color and they look pink when they are dry. who knows!
I do feed him these pellets but he REFUSES to eat them.
i think this is completely normal but i am no expert.
if you have a camera phone, try to get the clearest pics you can in some natural light and email them to yourself(or if you have an android, use the photobucket app!then you can directly upload with a link)
great! just putting it out there, your tiel is pearled wf right?
My boy is split to both pearl and white face so maybe it has something to do with those genes?
anyway, you could even post a picture that you already have maybe?? and then when you can, take another picture and post it. sort of a before and after?
Good idea. I just got my camera back so I will do that tonight. Im still trying to figure out how to post pictures on here though.
Oh and yes my cockatiel is a pearled white face (Ithink lol). So maybe it does have somehthing to do with that mutation?
