Olive Rainbow Lorikeet

Here is the Olive Rainbow with his female green scaly-breasted mate. The scaly has a severe case of fether plucking and most of the feathers on her chest and neck are missing exposing the white down feathers. A few of these are also missing in a line down her chest.
We have no idea why she has been plucked like this as she did not seem under stress in her previous owner's aviary. She is very active and extremely friendly. There is plently of activity in her new aviary and we hope with a good diet and lots of toys to prevent boredom that her plumage will return to normal.
The Olive rainbow is very protective and will soon chase off any other bird that annoys her.
