My 10 year old lovebird is developing red patches all over his body. What could be causing this?

Lovebird's feathers changing color
by: The Vet

The possibilities include:
Nutritional imbalances or deficiencies (birds should be on pellets)
PBFD (Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease virus)
Dermatitis
Aging
Liver disease
Chronic feather damaging behavior (plucking)
Polyomavirus
And possibly other.

I recommend that you take your bird in to see an avian veterinarian for a diagnosis and treatment.

I just experienced some color change with my finches. I was told sometimes change in diet can bring this on if all else is well with the bird.
