hello, i own ~10 years old female cockatiel. She has a problem in her eye. When i checked her i see that her beak darkened. Some yellow feathers appeared in the head. Also in her head there is a bald area which was pink before, now this area also darkened. Do you have any opininon what causes this ? i went to 2 vets but they are not experienced with birds, it is hard to find someone in my area who is really expert .

It looks like the beak is bruised. Beak bruises don't heal the way a bruise on the flesh does, but as the beak grows out the bruise will disappear. It's not a major problem.

I don't know what the problem with the eye is. If you think that it might just be a seed or some other type of foreign material that's stuck on there, you can try to gently remove it with a wet Q-tip (cotton bud).

Is it possible that the bald spot on her head has gotten bruised or sunburned?
