: Thanks for the reply :) I have decided to keep JoJo in a separate cage for some time and hopefully they will stop bugging her!! I was worried she might starve!
: On another note, JoJo was playing out of her cage with my son and all of a sudden lost all its tail feathers bar 1, JoJo did not seem at all irritable or in any pain nor was there any blood, it really freaked my 12yr old out, any input on this one?
- Well I am nit as certain w green cheeks but I do know Quakers will shoot all their tail feathers out in an act if self defense and some quakers will do it whenever they startle:) it's very odd to see them tailless but they do grow back in and it does not hurt them. However, you may want to consult a breeder of gcc on this cuz I am not certain birds other than Quakers do it. But if anyone would know, it would be a breeder:)
