Kind of want to cry.

Lilly was looking so good. Really filling in.
I moved the birds into the bedrooms so I could clean out front, I went back for her a couple hours later and she plucked a good amount again.
I want to cry.
I am not as strong as Huey's mom.

She's still beautiful. Parrotlets have the most gorgeous faces. Remember the first time you looked in her eyes, and fell in love? It's still there. And I'm sure you love her even more when this happens.

Oh, no. I'm sorry. I know how you're feeling; we're dealing with it too. What everything Sweet said is so so true though.

Violet,

Too bad we can't put a vest on a bird. They would not like it, me thinks. Sorry for the plucking!

Thanks guys. I love our forum so much because I know I can come here and you guys understand without trying to "fix" it. I feel like a bad Mommy, I probably shouldn't care as long as she's happy but I want my fluffy chicken back.
On a lighter note, she was standing the other day with one bare leg sticking out it was pretty funny, like she was striking a pose.

She's still beautiful. Not everyone or everybird is 'perfect' in everyone's eyes.

I think she is perfect no matter how she wants to wear her feathers

I'm sorry. I know you feel her pain with the plucking. Take a breath, and remember that you are giving her an amazing life and there is LITERALLY nothing you can do that you aren't doing. And give her a kiss from all of us. She is still beautiful!

I don't think it's unreasonable to be upset about it, even if she seems happy. Just keep reminding yourself that you're doing everything you can. And try to look at this as a temporary set-back. They'll grow in again.
