Aye. It is hard to keep your cool with all these challenges.
Alas, I guess that makes the effort all the more valuable.
And I believe many others, including me, are extremely grateful for the tremendous help offered by those such as yourself.
Thank you very much for your reply, it really helps. I will contact a vet as soon as possible.
By crop, you mean the top of the chest? I imagine you mean something else than the feathers that are unruly. His chest isn't really especially out of the ordinary as far as I know, just his feathers out of place. If you see something on the skin itself or something that is a different case.
something is wrong with your birds crop!!@ no crop should ever be that big in an adult bitd!! So the plucking of crop area is from pain from impaction or infection.
Your bird needs a vet right away...sorry but it does!
