Feather problems please can anyone help?
« on: June 01, 2017, 03:44:20 PM »

Hi everyone.
Please can anyone help me with my african gray tikki.
For about cupple of months now shes been having feather problems they just dont seam to want to grow back properly and ive tried calcium blocks and calcium in her water as someone at a pet shop who keeps parrots told me to do. And i have made sure her diet is balanced with seed fruit and veg etc. Shes talking and playing all day everyday so the problem dosent seem to be bothering her and shes not plucking herself as i have kept a close eye on her. Just a little confused what to try next. Any help greatly appriciated.
Thank you

Hi Jamie , do you have a avian UV lamp ?
They can't process calcium without vitamin D which unless they get access to the outside every day then they do need one
Can we have a pic as if she has plucked a long time she may of damaged the folicles and then they sometimes don't grow back xx
