Pulled Tail Feathers

My dog got into my bird room and pulled the tail feathers of one of my parakeets. She pulled them through the bars of their cage. Should the bird be ok and will he grow the feathers back

Tail feathers pulled out

I can answer this question for you. One of our birds went to the floor without our noticing and someone stepped on his tail feathers. What a scare!! Poor Buddy was a "duck butt" for a few weeks.

The tail feathers will grow back in fairly quickly, you don't have to worry about that. What you need to focus on is keeping it from happening again.
