Re: Help? Should I be worried?

This is common for growing young budgies! Most of the time turning brown indicates female -- during breeding season it can turn rather crusty and gross looking, but it is normal and just an indication that she is ready to breed. Males (most of the time but not all) ceres will turn blue.
