Plucking or moulting
« on: July 11, 2014, 02:05:41 PM »

Hi All

I'm really sorry to have to be having to ask
For people's advice but I'm hoping someone
Will be able to help me.

I've left posts on other pages of this site explaining
My situation but I've recently broke my leg and
Obviously have in a cast and since then Mamadou
Has not spoken one word I've got an appointment
With the avian vet Monday but I was just wondering
If people would know if he's moulting or plucking.

I have literally just found those feathers in his.

I'm really gutted he's generally a live wire don't stop
Talking and rattling his bell and doing all sorts of funny
Things it does seem a coincidence with regards my leg
Or I'm just clutching at straws

I've hopefully attached a photo.

these are moulted feathers nothing to worry about. if you look at the tip of them the part that's in the birds body. you will notice its dry no sign of blood which means its time for a new one to grow :thumbsup:

Hi John

Many thanks for getting back to me that's a relief
To know that he's moulting, Could that be why he
Is not his normal self I.E talkative etc, along with my
Situation being slightly awkward in doing my normal
Things with him.

Many Thanks
Tony & Mamadou

yes it could be tony. but if he's not his normal self if he's more sleepy with droopy wings or all fluffed up. it could be a sign he's not well.
if he's eating and quite active it could well be the circumstances you mentioned.
