Default Strange and not growing feathers

hi guys, i have 2 budgies that have really funny feathers, but the main point is that their tail and flight feathers just wont grow, when it seams that is about to start to grow they just fell out or something, and others they dont just grow straight, they a bit kinda like curly,

Does anyone know what this is or what is the cause of it.

i have attached few pics that ive taken

Ta in advance ... Ricko xxxx

I'm sorry to say that your budgies have French moult.
Unfortunately there is no definite cure for it, but your budgies can still live a normal life. What you can do to improve their quality of life is to put your budgies on a special diet rich in protein so that their feather condition improves a bit and so that their energy levels are good in order to cope with the constant feather loss and regrowth.

What are you currently feeding them? It does look like French moult, but i've seen birds look like that that ended up growing much much healthier feathers under a good diet.

You don't need to put her down, depending on the level of severity of the French moult, the budgie's feather condition can improve somewhat after they are on a special diet appropriate to their needs. You might consider taking the affected budgies for a check up at the avian vet in order to have a specialized opinion on the matter and a proper diet plan for your budgies.
