cockatiel losing chest feathers?
I have a male cockatiel, unknown age as we were given him as an adult about 7 years ago at least.
He lives with 2 females that are about 5 years old. They dont groom each other or really go near each other as the male wont let them cuddle up with him!
He seems to be quite bare on his chest, Im not sure why though. They sometimes start to grow back, but then they go again.
The females feathers are fine and in good condition.
They all eat the same and act normally.
Could it be a sign of old age?
Any help would be great :)
