As you know by now I have a flock of birds with my first bird being sky who has French Moult. Sometimes his skin is a little red but today I found him in a bad way with his feathers. I bathed and put cream on and separated him from all the other birds. He is chirping and tweeting at me and eating. When I first found him this evening I thought he would have to be put to sleep but now he is chirping head bobbing and playing I don’t know what to do.

I have spoke to a breeder who is a friend and believes he has been attacked so it might not just be his French Moult. At the moment there are no open wounds and blood is dry.

I believe keeping Sky in a cage by himself and spending lots of time with him is your best option.

Sometimes other budgies will attack a bird they believe is weak or ill.

If you have not already done so, please take the time to review the information in this thread:

I'd also recommend you remove the wooden dowel perches and replace them with natural wood perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

You can look at this thread for better options with regard to perches:
