Do any birds not have feathers?

Asked by Valeria Arias

Rhea, the featherless bird, is an adopted lovebird with Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD). The disease attacks the bird’s hair follicles, causing their feathers to fall off and keeps them from growing back. It wasn’t until two years after Rhea was born that she lost all of her feathers.
