African Grey's feathers turning black

I'm currently treating my Timneh African Grey for diarrhea but have now noticed that his once grey feathers seem to be turning black! What would cause this?

Black feathers
by: John

Black feathers on any parrot,(that doesn't exhibit normal black feathers), usually noticed at the ends and progress down the shaft. This is an indication of a sick bird,whether it is an illness, malnutrition, stress, etc. Get him to an avian ver asap. Also, keep a close eye on any other signs/symptoms, espically his droppings. Good luck...

Call your avian vet
by: Tracie

Please call your avian vet about this right away. If you are not taking your bird to an avian vet, then I suggest you find an avian vet. You can look for an avian vet on our Find an Avian Vet page.
