Plucking & Staying Bare
(Balt., MD., U.S.A.)
A bird I am about to rescue has plucked all of her chest feathers (her wings and tail feathers are beautiul).
I was told she is a Green Winged Macaw, but having raised many birds I do believe it is a Scarlet Macaw.
My question is that since her cage is constantly dirty (only paper changed every 3months or so),never really scrubed down. And the fact that I know she has had an improper diet. Will the feathers ever grow back with time, love and proper living conditions?
And is there anything I can do to help this poor animal?
Thank You Very Much,
