fatty deposit and feather loss
by Roanna Elliott
Thank you for taking the time to consider this question. I have a female cockatiel about 6 years old. She acts like she feels fine but for several months has been almost bald on her chest. She doesn't seem to be picking at herself. Also has a fatty deposit on lower chest by her leg.
I feed her seed with vitamins added that I get from a bird store. I am concerned that her feathers don't seem to be growing back and the fatty thing bothers me. I am sure not a bird expert but I love this one. Should I be concerned about this and do you have any suggestions. If you think pictures would help I can try to get them but I live alone and it would take an extra set of hands. Thank you, Roanna
