Ragged Tail Feathers

by Brenda

I have a Green Cheek Conure that I purchased just a few months ago. I have noticed that his tail feathers are getting really ragged. Is this something to be concerned about or is this normal?

I thought it was because my Sunday Conure was biting his tail but I have changed my mind on that theory. My birds each have their own cages and are still adjusting to each other. Could that have something to do with this?

Hi Brenda.
I would keep the Sunday and the GC seperate for a while. Watch you GC and make sure he is not over preening. Give him shredder toys.
