    I think we may have had one of these previously but I think my bird would take the cake.

    Poor thing. I'm a little worried because it's cold outside and she's, um, naked! She does seem a little embarrassed about her condition so I had to sneak these pics.

    :rolleyes:HMmmmmmm, that naked bird kinda looks as if it was drunk. I'd be worried, seeing my birds lose all their feathers like that. AND THAT HAPPENS HOW OFTEN?

    Most of the birds lose them more gradually but some seem to just blow their feathers all at once.
    She's got lots of healthy looking pin-feathers coming but they better hurry because it's getting cold!
