    I was going to say it might be scaly face mites but then I googled it and found out this article that says it is common for a females cere to look like yours when they are ready for breeding. http://en.allexperts.com/q/Budgies-3...round-beak.htm

    My female budgie looked like that when she got to a year of age. For some reason one side turned darker brown then the other. Nothing to worry about though. That's very true that their cere will turn a darker brown when the come into breeding mode. My female's cere stayed darker brown on one side than the other even when she was finished with her mating.
