I am a relatively new quaker parrot owner and this is my first posting on this site. My little baby is 4 years old and I adopted her over the summer. I just noticed that it looks like she lost a feather above her beak and another below her eye. I don't know why and I am very concerned. Is she molting? Is she sick? Could it be her diet? She eats pellets and is very picky when it comes to most fruits and veggies - but loves breads and seeds.
I asked my friend who works in a vet's office. He said that she could just have dry skin and I should spray her with warm water everyday. He said it could also be that its in heat and trying to nest? or maybe she is sick.
Any ideas or suggestions?
