What the HELL.

The little guy is almost completely plucked. It takes talent to get a Parrotlet to pluck itself bald. Poor thing probably has mites or some severe dietary deficiency and I WISH I could scoop him up and keep him safe here. Sad

Hoodie do you see his beak is over grown I would suspect feather beak disease , also referred to as french molt . A simple test would verify if it was feather beak or acute case of psittacosis it can cause poor feathering to .

And some birds fed a all seed diet start to pluck out of boredom .

Aww, that poor guy. Hoodie, I think you should contact the owner and take him in.

I thought of that too. PBFD is terrible. His beak doesn't seem too badly overgrown, but I hope whoever takes him in gets him vetted and doesn't have any other birds.

I know birds can/will pluck out of boredom, but Parrotlets don't seem as prone to it as some other species.

I really wish I could, but on the chance that the poor thing has PBFD (very contagious) I won't risk bringing him home to infect Sammy.

He's breaking my heart.

I wish I could afford to take him in... he clearly needs a good home.

Your right there that is why my first thought was feather beak , I do all my own testing the lab I use sends me free sample kits and I just clip a toe and get blood from it . the lab I use is the same lab in Tallahassee that most Vets around the world use so I trust the results . Any new birds I acquire rescue or my own personal get tested for several disease and treated while I have them in isolation . I have had to put down several that had feather beak, it has been in the rescue birds that have come here.
