CITRON COCKATOO WITH A BALD SPOT ON HER FACE
I have a 9 year old female citron cockatoo. Shes always had great feathers and no plucking problem. she recently started molting. she has had so many new pin feathers coming in around her neck and cheeks. it looked like she was starting to pluck just below her beak on her neck because there is a bald spot. I was just waiting to see what happened when her molt was over but yesterday I saw that the bald spot has now moved to her face just below her cheek patch. I don't see how she can pluck her own face so now I am a little more concerned. Is it possible for a molt to be so bad it causes temporary bald spots or should I be concerned that something else is wrong?
