Bird with dull feathers
by: Tracie

I am thinking you mean you have had the bird 3 weeks, since it can't be 3 weeks old and 5 or 6 years old.

Dull feathers are usually due to a lack of proper nutrition. This can be remedied by changing the birds diet to a high quality pellet diet. Most birds should eat 80% pellets that are not colored or full of sugar and chemicals. Parakeets eat less pellets, feed them 70% pellets.

Due to the lack of nutrition, this means the bird could have internal problems also. Please find an avian vet to examine your bird.
