Welcome Chvonne! Thank you for taking in a beautiful grey in need. It's great that you are taking her in to be evaluated. Hopefully you will receive some answers  from your avian vet.

If a bird has been a chronic plucker, it's one of those awful habits that's extremely difficult to break. Oftentimes the follicles become so badly damaged that they won't be able to regrow its feathers.

There are bird collars that some have used that help. Changing her diet to one filled with fresh fruit and veggies, adding organic red palm oil to the food and giving regular warm water baths will also help. Adding yams or sweet potatoes to her diet will provide her with much needed vitamin A, something greys really need.

Please let us know how your vet appt goes! Oh, and pictures of your brand new baby please! 🙂

Unfiltered Sunlight will help as will misting her with pure aloe vera juice (not the gel). Use brightly colored veggies and fruits to gain the most nutrition. Thank you for giving this bird a chance at a good life. You should be able to google to find an avian Veterinarian who is closest to you.
