Hello All

This is Estee Lauder my Common Indian Mynah. I rescued her as a tiny chick and hand reared her.

She is now nearly 3 years old and in general seems very happy. However she is losing feathers around her beak and I do not know why. It started before her second molt, but after the molt they all grew back. Then this year it was much more pronounced and she must have had her molt this year although it was less obvious and if anything the feather loss is only getting worse.

If anyone has any idea why this may be, any info would be much appreciated, cos I would hate to think she was lacking anything.

Images can be viewed here:

If you need to see then very close up, click original size below image.

Any help would be very much appreciated. Many Thanks.

Rufus
