Hole in my parakeet’s chest?

My parakeet has a hole in his chest. I’m not sure if I should be concerned about it. I noticed it earlier today while I was giving him a bath. Nor my mom or my dad knew what it was there for. Mind you, my mom has had about 5 parakeets when she was younger. Should I take him to the vet?


Hi Ciera,

Yes, you should definitely take him to an Avian Vet. He may have done this to himself, and that can often be due to a medical issue.

Take care,
