Can you post some photos of the feather loss you are seeing or a video of their actions and how they look?

What do you mean, they look like a cold? Do you mean they have symptoms like a cold - any coughing, sneezing, mucous, discharge from the eyes?

How are they being kept? Do they have access to food and water during waking hours?

It's hard to know what's going 4months most of their hard feathers should be about in. If you are seeing feather loss, watch to see if there is any feather picking.
