    Tailfeather's name's hidden meaning

    Tailfeather,my blue and white striped budgie who is a suspected male,has no tailfeathers.He is abused by his previous budgie cagemates in a pet shop who neglected him.I got him 2 days ago.His cagemates plucked his tailfeathers out.I hope that his tailfeathers will grow back soon.I would go on and be detailed but I am lazy (it's 21-14 in my time now by the way) and it's late.
    See ya!This forum's name and his name is just a coincidence.

    It will take some time for the tail feathers to grow back. But without having them pulled out by other birds, I am hopeful they will grow back. I suggest providing an excellent diet for him, including fresh greens, and, some bottled bird vitamins as well. I suggest putting a few drops of the vitamin in the seed cup with the seeds every ten days or so. I do not put vitamins in the water, because the water can go rancid, and make your birds sick.

    Do exactly what Ellen (maxollie) said. She gave you excellent advice. I have nothing else to add except Welcome to the forum.

    OK! Sounds great.I give all of them fresh meals with seeds as a treat.I'll go get some vitamins later.Can I put them in his food cup? ( His diet is 30% seeds 50% veggies,fruits etc and 20% pellets )

    Welcome to the forum. Our avian vet has always stressed to us to put a food container of pellets, one of seeds and grains and a treat bowl for fruits and other things in the cage and let them choose what to eat daily. I have noticed that all the birds in my family will eat lots of one thing one day and the next day they will hog down on something else. I have heard giving them a tiny dab of organic red palm oil a day is really great for them as well. It really helps with skin issues and feathers from the inside out. Just make sure it is organic red palm oil.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Personally, if it were me, I would continue with the mix you are using. In my view, if a bird is thriving on the mix you created for them, it is best to continue with that mix, because it takes time for them to get used to a different diet. Unless it is absolutely necessary to change the diet, I would suggest continuing as you are now. I would put 3-4 drops of the vitamin mixed in with the seed mix, about once every ten days. The pellets no doubt have some vitamin content and so do the seeds. You do not want to give them too many vitamins either.
