    Odd feather.

    I was helping my 8 month old CAG with her pin feathers and i noticed some feathers that are almost out, but they look weird. Is it normal for them to look like this? they only look like this on her lower neck and back, right below her beak - the feathers look healthy and fine.

    African grey plucked (?) feather

    my 8 month old CAG is going through her first molt and she's having a lot of feathers falling out. I collect them and put them in a little album i have, for memories. Yesterday i found these two at the bottom of her cage. They kind of look chewed off, compared to the others. Did she pluck them?

    Hi all, Despite what the title reads, this hasn't happened to me. Bobby, the parrot I've received two nights ago though has an extensively aggressive history of attacking people. One of the common behaviours he would do would involve lowering his head towards the bars, seemingly in the...
