Post: Fischer's lovie plucking
Posted by Rowena on 3/14/06
Was just given a little Fischer's last night to try and
help. It has plucked itself bald except for wings and tail,
and the tail seems to be going next. It's a Petsmart bird
and the store manager says they've had it under vet care
for the last 5 months and couldn't find anything. Said it's
never been left in it's cage alone, always had a buddy.
They don't know sex or hatch date but think it's under a
year old. I think with the vet care, we can rule out mites
or nutritional deficiencies. I've currently got it under a
heat lamp (not too close!!), a good lovebird mix, and it
was chirping to Gimp, my one legged two toed parrotlet this
morning. Asking for any thoughts and/or suggestions with
this little one. Thanks.
