I think she needs to see an avian vet ASAP. There are so many things it could be

The whole skin of the face and the beak looks damaged.
In your case I would see an avian vet soon.

I agree... She needs a vet... Different problems may look similar but have vastly different cures... Example if it is mites then an anti parasitic medication such as ivermectin is called for, if it is a fungal infection then ivermectin would be no good and an anti fungal would be the needed meds... If it is bacterial neither of those would work and you would need an antibiotic.. I hope you can get her in quickly as that looks uncomfortable.

Poor Alley, she doesn't look well at all, she needs professional help.
I am not familiar with bird deseases, but because you rescued her from the street it can be all sorts of things including malnutrition.
Is there any chance where you are to see an avian vet asap?

Wishing you and Alley all the Best

That does not look comfortable...are those spots on her beak food, or part of the problem?

I believe if it is food and Alley doesn't clean it off then the poor girl must be seriously ill. She needs to be looked at.

Bird-Boy, please let us know what you think about our opinions
