Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

Hello all, just checking in to give an update on my girl Newt, she has regrown like 99% of her feathers. Changed up her diet a little and made some routine changes. Also I do believe some...

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

I just sprinkle a little Nekton-Bio on her food. Since I've been doing that I've noticed lots of new pin feathers. I only do it every other day...It's expensive so I don't even come close to a full...

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

Hi Noodles, lots of bloodwork done, including the ones you mentioned above plus liver, CBC, all the majors. They also did a Tri-Chrome to test for Giardia which came back negative. I think I've...

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

Thanks guys, I think I am just feeling down about it. I see new feathers growing in all over. She is a sweet little girl so I am going to keep trying for awhile.

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

OK, so it has been a couple weeks and things I thought were improving but my bird continues to pluck herself. No health issues have been found. She is just lonely/bored during the day I guess. ...

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

My Vet is a DVM and is part of the Association of Avian Veterinarians, is that good enough?

She did a tape swab and looked under a microscope in the office, said her skin looked perfect.

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

So my bird has been doing a lot better since starting the Nekkon and fleece collar. I see a lot of new pin feathers coming in. She is definitely molting which is obviously uncomfortable to her. I...

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

Got a link? I noticed some pin feathers in around her head, it looks like she is molting and maybe just can't stand the itching? Which is making her pluck? I do notice her itching a lot lately. ...

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

I will look closer. If she is plucking, anyone had any luck with anything besides adding toys??

Re: Feather Help, Molting or something Else?

She was DNA sexed female. I will add toys, most of the toys are over on the other side of the cage. I do change them out but I could probably add a few more.
