My green parakeet is getting brown feather spots on her chest. Should I be concerned?

This could be a nutritional problem. If your bird is not eating pellets (like Harrison's), then that is my main differential.

However, it could be that the feathers are dirty or worn, or have stress marks. You should have you bird examined by an avian veterinarian to determine the cause and treat it properly.
