My Parakeet is losing feathers. What could be causing this?

Parakeet Is Losing Its Feathers

I had a canary whose cage was covered every night and placed where there were no drafts. He lost all his feathers except for a few top and tail feathers. He looked awful! He didn't have mites but we finally figured out what was wrong, he was too hot.

As soon as we quit putting the cover on his cage and quit worrying about drafts etc. he was fine. At the ripe old age of 12 we had to have him put to sleep as he was arthritic!
Hope your parakeet has the same long life. Good luck! (12/28/2007)
