Post: Yellow Napes New Feathers Coming in Strange
Posted by Pamela on 5/11/08
Our Yellow Nape will be 20 years old this month. For the
last several weeks he has lost feathers right where is neck
meets his shoulders in a spot about the size of a golf ball.
We know he is not plucking. He has all the little down
feathers but the regular feathers are coming in few and far
between. We took him to our Avian vet and she said he is
fine. She has been our Avian vet for at least 8 years so
she know our birds. Just for some reason his new feathers
are coming in with the quill being very thick and to keep
helping him preen to break them easier.
Anyone else ever have this happen?
