>> Stay informed about: African Grey ~ biting tailfeathers
Hello! I am a new member. We adopted a CAG a year ago from an abusive
home. He had no red tailfeathers when we got him, and were told they
would probably not grow back. Well, within 2 months they were growing in
A few days ago, I noticed that he has chewed or bitten most of them off
and they were laying in the bottom of his cage. I was so upset!
He has never plucked himself. This looks like he has bitten them off. He
is a good eater, likes fruits and is on pellets. He won't eat most
veggies. My husband does give him peanut butter, and other "bad" stuff.
Up til now, he has never had any problems. He seems happy, has come a
long way since we brought him home as far as tolerance and letting me
touch him. Husband is afraid of him so they don't have too much hands-on
I would appreciate any input, if anyone has suggestions, or ideas, I would
be grateful. Thank you!
