Feathers everywhere ..real post - 01/27/09 08:07 PM

sorry, it only posted the face and mot the message on the last post crazy I was wondering, my 2 white birds shed feathers all the time, within a few minutes, there are feathers everywhere, my 2 green birds barely shed at all. There aren't any bald spots on my white ones and the amount doesn't change whether they are molting or not, so, is it because their feathers are so fine that they fall off of them all the time? I feed them plenty of veggies and fruit, so I don't think it is a nutrition issue..is it just a white bird thing?

I find them everywhere too!
Maybe you see the white ones more because they show up? Also a thought, my brother has a green budgie and a lot of the down feathers are very pale. I expected them to be much brighter green or yellow like he is but some are almost white. So you could be mistaking some of theirs for the white ones?

I have to agree that you could be thinking they are mostly from the white birds when in fact they are not. All 4 of my boys have white down. I'm pretty sure most do.

Wow --- great point, ladies! I never knew that, nor would it have occurred to me.

Late reply I know but thank you both for commenting on my new avi, my little monster snuggles occasionally so it's nice to finally get a picture of it.
