    Dropped feathers

    Hey, so I just came home and got my cockatiel out and when he was flying around I noticed he dropped a ton of feathers all at once. I’ll add a photo. He seems to be fine and I didn’t see any bald spots but I was just wondering what this is? It seems a little early to be molting and I haven’t...

    Scared about new parakeet's health!

    Hello! I'm new to these forums, and I made an account because I'm worried about my new parakeet. I have two budgies: Sock and Glove. I have had Glove for almost 2 months and we have a great bond.

He started to lose more feathers since yesterday (2/7) and I have to bribe him with millet now to get on my hand, which never happened when I initially got him. My...
