cockatiel head bump, lost feathers

hello, my cockatiel was startled and flew into the door hard. he was dazed, but now shows all normal behavior except that he keeps losing feathers around his neck and around his ear. he also has a little bump over his eye. what should i do to help him heal up?

thank you! aurora

Cockatiel with bump and feather loss

Dr. B can not help you with this. You need to take your bird to an avian vet to be seen in person. Feather loss around the neck does not happen from bumping into something.
