"Olive my 10 yr old blue fronted has had a stressful few months. Our house was destroyed by Sandy in October. We lived on the beach in Rockaway NY. It was the only home she every knew. I weaned her. She always had her flight wings and would spend alot of time in the kitchen perched on top of the cabinets, also loved looking out the windows bird watching. Overnight we all became homeless. I lucked out and found a pet store ( Animal Kingdom)upstate NY to take her in until I got settled somewhere. The staff there were great they took such good care of her. I visited her whenever I could. I finally was able to take her back last month. Wasnt easy finding some place to live because all of rockaway as homeless and looking for housing. We are living in a basement apartment in Brooklyn. I was so glad to get her reunited with my lab Sam. My question is Why is she losing feathers? She molted in the fall as usual and grew back all new feathers. We have forced air heat here. I kinda think its because the air might be too dry for her. My house had steam heat and also living by the ocean the air was never dry even in the winter. I had her wings clipped because I didnt want her the have an accident in her new surroundings. I started spraying her with water a few times a day it helped, finding less feathers on the floor. Do you think putting a cool mist humidifier by her cage would help? Thank You"
