My Bangalese has a bald Butt!
(Toronto Ont Canada)
My Bangelese, I have 3 and what doesn't make sense is 2 have bald butts, and 1 doesn't. ??? I have 1 Zebra finch also in the cage (making 4 birds in 1 cage) that for some reason enjoys picking the feathers out of their butts and I have caught her, I take disciplinary action by squirting her bottom as well with room temperature water, not ridiculously so to soak her though, as well as a stern no, don't do that, it's not nice. I usually only use this tactic if she becomes very aggressive.
What makes me wonder though is the two birds that I am talking about came home with me together and then I purchased the other 2 shortly after, they came in the same batch from the pet store. one looks like he's got little blackish reddish dots in the balding area which is pinky color not red, with feather stems growing back, the other one is just pinky and feather stems growing back. I am just thinking that she maybe pinching his bottom, it's very strange, cause she seems to have chosen him as a mate as well, and growls at the other 2 Bangelese. we make sure not to let her get out of hand with the growling, when we hear her do it we give her a stern no, and make sure she gets along with everyone, we keep a very close eye on these 4 but it's difficult to catch every single problem that arises, we did at one time attempt to separate her from the three but she became very depressed, and refused to eat so we returned her home. not quite sure if this will ever stop? they seem healthy enough to me
p.s. I hope it's not serious.
