Non replacement of feathers after the moult

In a few cases of long term plucking or chronic malnutrition the feather follicles are irreparably damaged and new feathers will not grow. There is little that can be done about this other than to check that the skin is healthy. If you are unsure you should consult and experienced avian vet and have your bird's overall health checked.

Birds that have been 'stuck in the moult' for a long time may give up trying to replace feathers and stop moulting altogether. Supplementing with Daily Essentials3 and Calcivet will not stimulate a moult in these birds if they have stopped. However they may moult fully next time they try to replace their feathers.
