Today, All a sudem i noticed that my buddy has lost feathers around eyes within last 1-2 days! Is it because of the existing lice issue or molting (i don't know if she's molting)or something else? I have already ordered an online lice treatment but it will take some time to get it! If it's lice...will those feathers ever grow up again? What should i do to immediately stop further loss! 😞

Hi MananGaur! There are a lot of possible causes of feather loss. It is most likely that she's losing feathers because of the lice, but she could also just be starting to moult. If she's losing feathers because of the lice you can't really do much to stop the loss of more feathers without treating her for lice. Luckily, feathers lost due to lice or mites usually grow back in a few weeks or when the bird moults.
