Green Cheek Conure Off Feather Growth
I have had my green cheek conure for about 5 months now and within the last month he has begun growing quite odd feathers. These feathers look like white stems. They originally appeared on his face, then began appearing on his head and are now growing from his neck. They appear to be feathers growing without the fluffy part, only the "white stem" of the feather. They don't seem to bother him and he doesn't pluck or pull out feathers. These "white stems" don't seem to be painful as I've looked at and palpated them and it doesn't bother him. It doesn't seem to be threatening him in any way but it doesn't look right... Any idea as to what these odd feather growths could be?
