Help My IRNS feathers are coming out bloody

Post by Hermionestwin » Mon May 16, 2011 4:18 am

My 1 Year old female IRN has had 2 flight feathers fall out when she has been flapping and the ends have been bloody and look like they have been broken off. She hasnt chewed a them, but it seems like there is something wrong i dont know...should i go to the vet or her breeder about. We usually cut her flight feathers but since her moult i havent had the chance to trim these ones because they were late to fall out and grow fully.. I will post pics later

are those blood feathers? all feathers have a blood supply when they grow in, if they are broken its often hard for the bird to clot- does it continually bleed? if it does, get it pulled out or wait for experienced members or take her to the vet
