“Along with losing her feathers, she also lost the ability to fly, but no longer had the will to live! And after five years, everything was different…”

Five years ago 23-year-old Isabella Eisenmann read a social media post about a lovebird that had lost all feathers. The bird, named Rhea, needed a new and Isabella jumped at the chance to provide one and quickly fell in love with Rhea, now a good portion of Instagram has fallen in love with her too!

Unfortunately for Rhea, she is not going to grow her feathers back due to Psittacine disease, a beak and feather disease. So she has to wear sweaters to not only look good but also stay warm. In really bad cases some birds lose their beaks and claws along with their feathers. Thankfully for Rhea, she has a mild form that requires nothing more than an annual blood test.

Rhea has not let her condition get her down. She is extremely outgoing and very social, spending most of her time out of her cage running around the house, sometimes singing as loud as she can. She demonstrates to everyone different can be super cute too.

“Acceptance is key and no matter how different you are physically, you are still beautiful; that’s what I want people to learn from her. Always smile, be happy and have a positive attitude,” Isabella said.
