Sun-Day Conure missing feathers, overnight
(New Richmond, OH)
My Sun-Day Conure (hybrid) was missing his grown feathers (sorry not sure of correct terminology) and was only showing the white down feathers on his chest and belly. I thought maybe this was because he was stressed so I made a point to get him foraging toys and make sure he has more time out of his cage and his feathers improved and within a week they had grown back.
Then one night I wasn't able to let him out and I noticed the next night that he was back to only the white down feathers. Are they that sensitive? Any suggestions?
This is my first conure and comparing them to my dobermans I find it commical how alike they are so I understand they are not the easiest, I'm just not sure what else I can do with him. He doesn't seem interested in games and such just hanging out and being destructive and talking/mimicking us. Thank you.
