 Product Description

Creat Your Own Feather Picking Kit

Feather plucking has many causes so, please, ALWAYS take your feather plucking parrot to the avian vet to determine if the problem is medical in nature, such as fungal or bacterial infections, parasites, or malnutrition.

Our Healthy Feather Pack has been developed especially for parrot feather plucking that has been determined to be "behavioral" in nature.  This Feather Plucking Pack helps you address feather picking from multiple angles:

What Causes Behavioral Feather Picking? 

  • Anxiety, Nervousness and Obsessive Compulsive Behavior.  May be related to boredom
  • Skin Irritation
  • Boredom
  • Habit

Keep in mind that a normal parrot regenerates feathers once or twice a year so it may take a few months for you to see results with the Feather Plucking Starter Pack.

ANXIETY:

FEATHER REGROWTH SUPPLEMENTS

Pluckers are constantly regrowing feathers.  This is very demanding on the body and depletes essential nutrients from other organs and body systems.

Hi Diane,

In answer to your question, NO our vet did not find a medical reason for Sugar's feather picking.  What you say makes so much sense.  We do give Sugar tons of attention, although really reactive when he is picking and not nearly as "fun for him" when he's biting his chest.  We will change this immediately! Thanks for the Good Bird link.

I wonder if you can cancel my order #XXXX.  I will order your Healthy Feather Plucking Starter Pack immediately.
Thank you again :)
