my peach faced lovebird has a bold patch is it sick?
I have a peach faced lovebird and one of my relatives gave it to me. It had a bold patch on the top of its head already when they brought it to me. I figured this was due to molting in birds. But Ive had it for about 3 weeks now. And I've noticed its feathers haven't grown back yet. Could it be sick??
I've visualized the bird to see if it plucks out its own feathers due to stress. But it doesn't. Before they gave it to me, it was put with 3 other birds and they fought a lot. They pulled off each others feathers when they fought. So I thought the problem of the bold patch could of been because of that too. But shouldn't its feathers have grown back by now? Its not loosing any of its feathers any where else which reliefs me, but why hasn't its bold patch covered up by now is it sick?
Because melting shouldn't cause bold patches. If it is sick or has an infection what can I do to help it??? Instead of taking it some place?
