Growing lost feathers?

I currently own two parrotlets, a male and a female. They usually get along but the male (Keefir) had recently lost feathers when he crashed into a wall. Now the female (Kiwi) keeps chasing him around but Keefir cannot fly away. Is there any food or nutrients I could give Keefir to grow his feathers faster? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I've found that Harrison's Bird Bread does wonders for feather growth and overall healthy looking plumage. My pair will eat it for a few days and then I'll immediately notice their feathers looking sleek and shimmering. It's a mix and I usually use Aviglo's red palm oil (though I've considered using coconut oil) and will alternate between using just egg whites and whole eggs to control the amount of fat they're getting.

I hope the peace is restored soon!

Flight feathers can take a while to come back.
If she's chasing him and he can't get away I suggest not letting them out together until he gets his wings back or she stops.

Thanks for the answer. I'll be sure to try this out the next time I go shopping.
