Female Eclectus Parrot Orange Feather Discoloration
by Pam Eversole
Our 3-year-old Female Grand Eclectus parrot is beginning to show small patches of feather discoloration: orange on the red areas of her head and neck, a dull olive on her back. We have her under a full-spectrum light. The only recent change is that she has become bored with her pelleted diet, stopped eating and refused to adopt any of the new pellet forms we have offered. Is this a nutritional deficit? What would you suggest as a remedy?
