What to do about blood feathers on a Sulpher Crested Cockatoo?
by Steve Hawkes
I've had Patagonian Conures, Amazons, cockateils and parakeets but I've never had to deal with a large cockatoo and this type of issue before. I've heard so many different stories regarding blood feathers and whether or not it's a dangerous or painful situation. Please help. If I need to pluck the blood feathers, is it painful for the bird and will it continue to bleed?
