Ring neck loosing feathers.


Hello.
I have a Indian ring neck parakeet and for some reason he started to loose his feathers near his eyes. I’m confused on why.. please let me know if theirs anything I can do to help him grow his feathers back.


Answer:

Hi Maria,

When a bird loses feathers around the eyes, it often means he has a sinus or respiratory infection or problem. It’s best to take him to an Avian Vet so he can be diagnosed and treated.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
