Baby Lorikeets feather question

by Shyafira

Hi, I have 2 baby Lorikeets and that are around 2-3 weeks old and are starting to get their red feathers on their chest.

I accidentally spilled some food all over their chest when i was feeding them and when i eventually took it off it pulled quite a few of their feathers out.

I was just wondering will this affect anything or if they will eventually grow back?

Thanks for the help!

What I don't understand is what you mean by "eventually took it off". When you spill formula on a baby while feeding, use wet or damp soft cotton cloth to clean them up. You cannot allow food to dry on a baby because it will pull out feather shafts later and is very unhealthy. New feathers will come in when they do. Just clean your babies up after feeding them.

Thanks for writing,
