Balding around Eye of Cockatiel
by BD Greenman
irritated eye and surrounding area
We have recently put a male in with our female. Their behavior has been very civil. Today we noticed she has many feathers missing around her eye on one side. They are being a little aggressive towards each other. Does this seem like a spat or a sickness or pre mating behavior? While I was taking the pix I saw her scratching the area with her foot.
