Bella in the pet shop by wes mcfaden, on Flickr

I was told she was 8 months old and previous owner got a new dog that scared Bella into plucking.
ACV said no way on the age, she had to be older but could not give me age.

So this is how she looks in her optimal appearance.

Wow! You did great! Her face shows such happiness in the second picture! So happy she is safe with you now!!!

Plucking once started is so difficult to get stopped. I rescued Penny and I thought with good home, being clean instead of covered in poop, good food , being out of the cage and lots of attention she would stop. Once almost all feathers came back around neck.....then she started again.. so I understand..

Re: Bella update

Wow, you are doing so great with Bella! She looks amazing, glad that you found her and she ended up with your family - she looks happy and loved. I love observing African Greys. I saw one at an aviary a couple of months ago for the first time. I would not trust myself to have one, maybe many years down the road.
