My girls are starting to look stragely and their feathers are looking freyed. I feed Purina Layena, they get scratch, lots of goodies like lettuce, grass, broccoli, stale breads from the store, some marshmallows for bribery, and they love peanuts (unsalted of course) I have done some searching on here for protien and am wondering if too much protien will cause the freyed feathers? I have one that i think is picking others feathers, but i dont see how she could pick that much. the back feathers are freyed as well! Can peanuts give them to much protien? I am confused now that i have read all the other threads on it!!!! the new 8 month olds look fine and shiney and fluffy, its four or 5 of my 1 1/2 year old RSL's that have lost feathers on their backs ( I am assuming from 'Bird and his manlyness...lol). It doesnt look like they are growing any feathers back as well!
