We adopted our young cockatiel, Baby, this past May.
His feathers were fine and he had a long tail and looked as a healthy tiel would look.
Since he had a molt, though, his feathers look rather 'ratty' (sorry to use this expression, but I can't think of anything else). He looks dishevelled, and he doesn't have a full tail anymore.
All I was able to find online was that perhaps Vitamin D and/or exposure to sunlight might help him.
Other than his feather issues, he is perfectly healthy and he eats extremely well. Not only does he chow down on gourmet/regular seed, he eats all manner of vegetables, lean meats and fruit, grains such as bread, rice, pasta, etc.
Does anyone have any advice for Baby? What could be causing his feathers to be this way?
