    Oh absolutely.It zoomed over my head this was a finch we're
    talking about.Hard to say really,they do actually have a little
    faster metabolisms than the bigger birds,so hopefully it will
    grow back.
    Adding a little low-fat protein to his diet ought to help,some
    mealworms or meat,whichever your birds are used to.
