My name is Sujoya, and I'm a mother of 4 budgies. One of my Budgie who is 1 year 6 months olds is losing feathers constantly.
Firstly, when I saw bald patches.. I assumed it was moulting because He was having pin feathers. But soon I got to notice the bald patches is increasing, the pin feathers grow and turn dark and fall off. It's been 6 months now and he has lost a lot of feathers.
I took help of Avian Vets nearby me, and they told me different reasons for it.
My little budgie is scratching all the time, I do give him good diet food like seasonal veggies and vitamins& calcium. He eats well, sleeps well and plays too. I'm concerned about his feathers, and no where I could find the solution.

I tried Original Alovera application, haldi application, a light dettol water spray as the doctor told me, I used the spray products for mites, neem spray and nothing is working.

I never keep my budgies in cages, they're always free. The kind of sellers here in Ranchi, Jharkhand clip off their wings. It's so sad, That's a major reason I never keep them locked and they all are very friendly.

Please Help me out, I'm very worried about my little tweety bird. I love him so much, most of my time is spent with him. Now, I've started to notice My other budgie has also started to lose feathers .. I'm very Worried please help.

Have they been tested for French Moult?
No, Because there is no such access to test that where I live. Infact, not even around 100 kms.

There is no proper facilities around me for bird health.

Help Him, Please.

So sorry your bird(s) are having this problem. If you are starting to see this in more than just one bird then I would suspect that it is something that can be passed from bird to bird or something in the environment that is causing it and not something wrong with just the one bird. You are referring to this bird as a he but judging by the cere color in pictures you have posted it is a female. There are avian vets in India, if none are near you perhaps you could contact one of them and ask for advice. Do a search on the country in this link and you will see the list of names and locations
Your little female budgie is darling. What is her name?

From your description and the pictures posted, it sounds as though this budgie, and possibly some of your others, is suffering from the disease called French Molt.

It is going to be very important that you provide your budgies with a very nutritious diet and keep their living space clean and hygienic.
