Plucking recovery!!!!

Sponsored Links
As I posted a couple of weeks ago, my, now 6 month old, conure had started plucking. We took him to the vet and the vet declared that he WAS molting but she also informed us that the air in our house was very very dry making Pickles's new feathers very itchy. She gave us medicine to put in his water and we bought a bird-safe humidifier . His feathers have grown back almost completely!!! We couldnt be more happy. Also his vocabulary is improving very quickly. Our new quaker has taught him "Whats the matter?" "pretty pretty" "baby birdddd" "woof woof" and a few other things. We couldnt be more happy!!!

Here is some pics. If you scroll down you can see what his stomach looked like before:

Re: Plucking recovery!!!!

So great I love hearing of pluckers recovering, I have a harlequin macaw who is on her way to recovery as well! So maybe your guy stopping will somehow transmit to my sweet girl.

Umm I am not sure what medicine we used. It went in his water though.
