Will Feathers Grow Back?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I purchased a young supposedly hand-raised baby from a bird shop on the October long weekend last year. The bird didn't have any tail feathers and I assumed that the flight feathers had been clipped although I have since been told by someone more knowledgeable than me that they aren't there. When I enquired about the missing feathers I was told that 'I must have pulled them out during the hand feeding but don't worry they'll grow back.This little bird has now lost the bars on top of his head and yet there is no growth of these feathers and he looks like a little Dodo bird! Will these feathers grow back as I was told or do you think he may have been damaged and will stay as he is. He's a great pet so it doesn't matter but I'm sad to think I may have been lied to. Thanks!!

Huge thanks for your response Kat!! You have probably saved my bird's life. I took him and his cagemate to an Avian Vet this morning (Dr Rob Marshall at Carlingford). He has put Monkey on an immune enhancing programme. Slides of the droppings also showed LOTS of bacteria in Monkey's poop & Megabacteria in Storm's poop. So, perhaps you have saved them both. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply.
