I have a four year old budgie who is in good health and gets lots of exercise flying about the house. He is very tame and of a good nature. He molts frequently. His head feathers from the top above his eyes back about a half inch get wet from some kind of clear secretion and when it dries the feathers clump. If I can get him to take a bath and get his head wet it will clear up but it is reoccurring and he rubs his head on his perch so I know it bothers him.

  • Welcome to Pets.SE! Please take the tour, it only takes a minute but shows you how this site works. Sorry for being nitpicky, but Pets.SE is a Q&A site, meaning every post must ask a question. Your post contains valuable information, but no question. Could you please edit your post and ask one specific question, like what could have caused this clumping or how to avoid it?
