Congo African grey chewing feathers on her legs
by Erich VonFuerstenberg@yahoo.com
10 yr old Congo African grey chewing feathers on her legs. Rose has been in perfect health and feather and within the last 2 days she has literally plucked the down feathers off her legs! There are two patches one on each leg. Shes on rowdy bush pellets and eats grapes apples and almonds.
She hasn't ever had this behavior prior to this. I distracted her and put cubed ice in her water bowl and she seems to be entertained long enough to leave her legs alone. Any ideas as to what I should do? Shes 10 and never been in a breeding situation. I mist her daily or put her in the shower and soak her good.
