Tail freather got pulled out


My Conure got out and while trying to catch him my sister step on his tall to try to catch him he was trap but we got him back but he lost all his trail Feathers and bleeding I stop the bleeding will his feathers grow back?


Answer:

Hi Kristie,

He should not have been bleeding from losing feathers unless he had some blood feathers or possibly got injured. The tail is very sensitive and stepping on it was a very dangerous thing to do. She could have broken something or paralyzed him. Most likely the tail feathers will grow back as long as she didn’t manage to injure him. Ideally you should take him to an Avian Vet for a check up.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
