stupid birds
i think xander and zoey have been fighting. zoey is usually the superbitch in any bird on bird situation but her feathers are falling out of her face and i think i just saw blood spots on her wings! =( the weird thing is i dont see them fighting, although i did spot xander pulling on zoeys tail last night, but that doesnt explain the lack of facial feathers.

*edit* i just saw her scratching her face on thebars of the cage. you think she has mites? idont know where she would have gotten them from shes been fine up until now and shes only been in contact with one other bird. i know nothing about birds. thats prolly why i gave them to june and the girls =P *not to mention they kept waking me up*

Current Mood: worried worried

could be mites, you don't have to get them from other birds, they could have come from bedding, food etc. Best get them checked out.

Are any of her other feathers falling out, or has she been really grumpy? She could just be having a rough molting stage...check down near the roots of her feathers and see if the tubey looking things are red, which would mean the new feathers are coming in..
If her face feathers are falling out and not growing back, then it might me mites. You should look at her skin and around the base of her feathers and see what condition her skin is in. I'm sure there's medicated shampoo for bird mites.... Although if Xander doesn't seem to be having the same problem, it might not be mites, because they'd probably have spread to him, too.
