    Missing feathers

    My budgie had his first bath today - first for him doing it himself
    I noticedthat he is missing the feathers that are just above the cere. Any idea how this could have happened?
    He is the only bird in the cage.

    Yup, if he was wet at the time, that is it!

    Like your hair-the feathers will usually part differently when wet, I know EXACTLY what you mean-my budgies wil part there, too, and make him look as if he is missing a row!
