I don't know what happened to the yellow bird but one day when I'm away suddenly I saw blue colour's feather fall. Then the next day the yellow bird can't fly really high. He is a great flying bird compare to all the birds but suddenly this happened..
Can anyone please give me the way to cure and what is the cause please ..... IMG_20211103_110911.jpg

How is he acting otherwise? Eating? Are his droppings normal? Can he move his wings ok?

Losing tail feathers like that will suddenly change the level of flight control he has. This can seriously affect their confidence too, so maybe he just feels unsafe?

He's acting normal, eating normally and his droppings is so small better than last time, and if he fly he will fall down but he can move his wings but he can't fly....

I can’t see clearly in the photo but it doesn’t look like he has a full set of flight feathers - were those the feathers that fell off?

I agree with the above post. I can only see one flight feather on this side - not enough for flight.

That's a lot of flights to lose together. Has he had an injury to the wing? Is the left wing the same? How many feathers has he dropped?
There I was thinking the problem was the tail. D'oh!
