I have a Ducorps Cocatoo who is 11 years old. She began plucking about 6 yrs ago. She sae an avian specialist, had all testing which was fine. We have tried all the suggestions with no luck. She has always eaten a pellet diet with extra fresh fruits and vegetables.
My recent problem is that for the last several months when I hold her she begins shaking all over. It does not matter how warm it is in the house. As soon as I move her a little she stops then when we cuddle again she starts. One vet said she is horny. Another said it is sexual also. Any suggestions on how to stop this? Holding her is not enjoyable with this behavior.
