    So my budgie that ive had since the last January 1st never
    looked any different for all that time. About 1 month ago
    its cere cahnged from that brownish rough form to smooth
    and light blue. NOW, i notived just this morning that it
    has black little dots on its forehead and at a closer look
    i found that they were growing out of these whitish
    stocklike things. Im guessing their just new feathers and
    the things their growing from can fall off cuz...some did
    when we were holding it.
    My guestions are...
    Are they really just feathers?
    Will the white things all fall off?
    Is this regrowth a good thing?
    And why are the feathers on the head blackish?
    Its head is yellow and i thought as it gets older the
    white wavy lines go away? confues and found no to little info on other sites.
    Please help, any input is good. thanks
