    My darling roo Carlos had a run in with some bugs and managed to loose all the feathers on both sides of his neck. We treated for mites, lice, and fleas and he seems to be happy and healthy now. My question... how long does it take for feathers to grow back?

    They will most likely grow back next time he molts, usually (a least with mine) they molt in the fall.
