    looks like now this is my guess maybe she was pecked in the eye and it is minor.

    I know next to nothing... but can you put some neosporin or other triple antibiotic on it if it is an infected pecking or lesion? (just for future reference for my own birds as well...)

    aww
    poor birds. [​IMG] I think they may have some avian disease. or a viral infection. The link above has the symptoms and other info about Avian Pox. I hope this helps and hopefully some more people will chip in and help! [​IMG]

    Good luck and I hope your poor birds get better soon! [​IMG] :aww [​IMG]

    To me the first pic looks like foul pox and the second looks like it could be Coryza.
