Acquaintance of mine gave me a young ringneck (about 3 years old) saying that ever since her partner clipped its wing feathers, it won't grow back. My question is, how is this possible? She said the wings were clipped 7 months ago and didn't grow back ever since. Is it possible that her partner somehow injured the bird in such a way that the feathers won't grow anymore? Is there any kind of nutrition I should try? I'd love to see the bird fly.
From the bird's appearance I suspect the bird is malnutritioned hence doesn't have enough nutrients to grow nice long feathers. I started the bird on plenty of vitamins. Leafy vegs, bananas, carrots, apples and seeds.
I hope to see dramatic improvement with time.
