Bird plucking feathers after cage mate death
by: Tracie

You didn't mention how the mate died, so I need to mention that if your bird died due to illness or something unknown, then first Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to rule out illness, infection and disease.

There are some homeopathic feather plucking remedies that help many birds that are going through stress that you might want to try.

Besides spending more time with your bird, to comfort the bird, please also read our Feather Damaging Behavior article that was written by an avian vet.

I hope your bird stops plucking soon.
