Hello, I have a ten year old female eclectus who has just starting plucking in the last month. I am very concerned, I read here that maybe I should change to pellet food and let her forage instead of open bowl.
We never had a problem in all of the ten years, we raised her from six weeks old. We feed her seeds, millet, cracked corn, trail mix, and fresh foods. You also mentioned dry skin. When we went to our very expensive avian vet he told us it was probably hormones and gave her a hormone shot.
We have seen no improvement in fact she is getting worse. She loves her showers and it may be very dry in our house because we have had a lot of work done lately downstairs. Should we put a humidifier in with her?
And, to confuse things more, we left her with my sister's male (which we have before with no problem) for a week at a time twice during this period of work being done.... Please help if you can, Anna
