Ben our young Eclectus Parrot - So, so sweet
by susan saleeby
(Berkeley Heights, New Jersey)
I have an Eclectus parrot one and a half
years of age.
He gets an extremely good diet veges, fruits
and high quality pellets.
Ben gets a spraying every day, and a full
bath twice a week. He scratches himself
and pulls some of his pin feathers out.
He is still a beautiful bird; however, I
want to solve his problem. He has a
huge cage, and he shares a room with Peaches,a cute White Bellied Caique. Ben
and Peaches are true friends.
What am I doing wrong to cause Ben to
scratch a patch of his beautiful green
feathers out only to leave his down feathers?
Thank you for your attention.
