I have a male parakeet that has not been having a very good day. Well to start off at 4 a.m. this morning I heard him screaming, I flew out of bed and ran to his cage thinking that maybe he was fighting with his cage mate. She is female and they have only been together in the same cage for 2 weeks. Well when I got to the cage I took the blanket off the top and he was freaking out flying and screaming all over his cage. He was xxxxxx, and I could tell. Well upon observing what was going on with him, I noticed he was missing all this flight feathers on his right wing. Plus I have noticed alot of his feathers on the bottom of the cage the last 3 days. So i dont know if he is moulting or what. But would moulting cause him to lose all his flight fleathers on just one side?
Ok now to add to his terrible day, he was sitting on my sons shouldr and my son was playing a maze game that all the sudden a scary facce shows up, well my son screamed and blue my ket freaked. Tried to fly but he cant cause his flight feathers on that one side are gone. I looked on the floor and his tail feathers were all just laying there, and he has no tail feathers... =(
Well I removed my female keet from his cage thinking that she is pulling his feathers out.. I dont know what to do, I dont know if she is doing it or what. Also will his tail feathers grow back?
