Sounds like one of two things might have happened - either your dad just managed to pull out the feathers, or Paki got scared and spontaneously molted. This can happen sometimes if they recieve enough of a fright.

Assuming that no blood feathers were broken or anything like that, Paki should be fine. Just give her a lot of TLC, and don't grab her again!

If you have to "grab" a parakeet to get it out...it obviously doesn't want to come out. Is it finger trained? If not, DO NOT take it out. That's a VeRY bad idea. So, finger train paki then paki will step onto your hand and then you can take him/her (i don't know) out.

She'll be fine like Sushi'n'Stitch said as long as no blood feathers were pulled out.

I did some research on the internet and found a nice piece of information......

When is a blood feather dangerous?

The danger with blood feathers occurs if a feather is cut, broken, or bent. Because the feather has an artery and vein, a damaged blood feather will bleed, often profusely. Once a broken blood feather begins bleeding, the simplest solution is to gently remove the damaged feather by pulling it.

You can find a whole page on "Blood Feathers" here, http://www.quakerville.com/qic/qbfeathe.asp

I hope I helped smile
