Remember KooKee, our Quaker parrot, whom we outfitted with a sweater vest (made out of a baby’s sock) to keep her warm through the cold winter? You can see how I made the sweater and her reaction to it here: How To Make A Sweater Vest For A Parrot.
KooKee had plucked out all her feathers on her back, belly, legs and under her wings. What I didn’t mention in the post about making the vest was that besides being very cold, she continued to pluck out any new growths even though she was getting excellent medical care and was on medications. In desperation to stop her continued plucking and keep her warm, I created a sweater vest for her to wear. Now 6 weeks later I thought you’d like to see how she’s doing.
