    I have a 3 year old bc conure and also just acquired a
    plucked bc conure that i was told is 3 years old. He/she is
    not banded and i didn't get much info from the owner.She
    said she had him 6 months and he was plucked when she got
    him,she thought another bird did it to him but i doubt
    it.She had him around other birds also and they seemed
    healthy.I have kept the bird away from my other birds and
    have him in an area that is pretty quiet to get him
    adjusted.The owner told me that he stays in 1 area of the
    cage always and i've noticed the same,ive only had him 2
    days now.I haven't tried to hold him yet because i want him
    to get adjusted 1st,she said some people have held him tho,
    but she never has.He seems depressed and doesn't have a ton
    of energy.He was real quiet at first but today he has
    vocalized more and his appetite is better.I would love to
    work with him but think he may need some expensive vet
    testing to see what his real problem is so I think i'm
    going to give him for adoption before i get to
    attached.Does anyone know of any avian vets that would
    adopt him and work with him?
    Or any other advice that you may have,i've spent hours and
    hours online searching topics on plucking.I haven't really
    found anything on plucking with the same symptoms.If i only
    knew more about his past it would help so much.
