Lovebird's Thinning Feathers Around Eyes
I have a Lovebird whos feathers around his eyes appear to be a bit thin... I wasn't sure I really noticed it at first (or if his feathers just look thinner b/c he is a light color) but my sister confirmed it. His feathers seem thinner and maybe a little rugged on the inside of his eyes (between his eyes and beak). I have two lovebirds - they are caged seperately but in the same room. they are let out at the same time and play together. The other lovebird seems fine. I do have another bird that is new to the gang. right now he is in a seperate room in quarantine - he has been there for a little over 2 weeks. i wash my hands and change clothes between handling of the new bird and the lovebirds. he new bird - a budgie - was rescued by one of the vet techs at my avian vet and i adopted him from the vet. the new bird lived free until he was caught and rescued and then lived for a few months at the vet.... i do have a vet appointment for both my lovebirds on monday b/c neither of the avian vets will be in until then...just want to know what some of the causes could be...is this somehting that can wait until monday?....
