blood in cage
(Louisville, KY USA)
I currently have 2 birds in the same cage.. i have a lovebird and i have a parotlet. I received these birds after their owner (my stepmother) passed away. When i received the birds the lovebird warmed up to us right away and was very friendly, however the parotlet was stressed out ( due to owners death i assume) and had picked his chest bare ( no feathers).
I have had the birds now for over a year but the parotlet continues to pick his chest and wing feathers. Im not sure whats going on but today i found blood on the wall behind their cage and there is blood on the perch's and on the food bowls... Ive inspected both birds completely and although the parotlet picks his feathers there is no blood on him but on my lovebird's underbelly by her tail i found specks of blood.
Is this caused by something they have ate or is from the parotlet picking his feathers... I wish i had more info but this is all i have...Plz help.. I am including pics of both birds.
