It's so hard to have a bird do this. Huey looks great, I hope those feathers stay. I honestly wish Lilly has as many feathers as him even at his worst! I will show her Huey for inspiration.

I have been giving it to him for a few months now. I stopped the fetheriffic because that was making his feathers come in faster and it seemed to make him itchier.

So far so good, the new feathers came in and it seems like he is keeping them in, I saw a pile of feathers in his cage the other day but no more for days. Who knows? maybe he will keep these feathers.......

That's good to hear! Maybe he'll decide he doesn't hate green so much after all!

Because Rizzie made this wonderful thread, I would like to add some pictures of my girl also. My girl Lilly has plucked more of her feathers than Huey (at least in these photos) she more chews them off to the skin or pulls them including the down. They came in a bit and she left them for about a month, I thought I was home free and then she plucked again.
These are a progression of the first three or so days she started plucking:
#1 still has down

#2 nearly all the down has been removed

#3 these are some more recent pictures, the left is the extent to which she let them grow in, the right was the same day just hours later she started again. Currently she is back to #2 she pulls everything but the flight feathers and her tail, even her back and rump plus the top of the wing.

Lilly has such pretty legs..... IMO I would call what she is doing plucking and what Huey does barbering.

My guess with her is still sexual frustration as that is where it all started. Maybe keep a log because she pulls then they grow then after a bit she pulls again. Maybe then you will see a pattern?

That's a great idea! I can go back too because I have photos to catalog.
Yes aren't her legs lovely? Sometimes she sticks one out to strike a pose. LOL my little chicken....
