    Concern over feather

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone can give me an idea with my cockatiel. I got him only a few weeks ago and has had a blood feather after he bumped into something while flying around. The blood feather is now gone, and he seems to have healed nicely since then. However, as he flapped his wings...

    Abnormal feather

    Hi, I have an 8yr old alexandrine parakeet. She has a deformity in her feathers from birth, in which some feathers would grow out twisted and is very painful for her.

    Cockatiel feather plucking (scratching with beak) back feathers

    A while ago she was laying dozen eggs but she has stopped. I'm now seeing her scratching (with her beak) the back feathers mostly. I think it's called "feather plucking" but she's not bald or have bare skin. I have seen some feathers on the floor and on the cage. And, one or two feathers still...

    Feather question

    I think I've noticed that Ruby's feathers break down more than normal. When she is preening she leaves a LOT of dust and feather fragments which I think is atypical based on comments from other Ekkie owners. She doesn't barber her feathers or anything and has full plumage, but whenever she loses...
