Hi, my rainbow lorikeet has lost alot of its tail feathers, and his wing feathers keep falling out really easy, hes acting the same as usual and he isnt eating or drinking any diffrent and hes talking all the same. I really cant see anything that could be causing this to happen, so if anyone has any ideas, id be really glad to hear em.

Feathers falling out
by: Tracie

I can't tell if your bird is molting or if there is something serious going on. If you have had the bird for a long time and this just started happening then get the bird to an avian vet asap.

Bird do lose feathers, but more should be growing in at the same time.
