Excessive fleather plucking
(Sydney, NSW, Australia)
Is there anything that you can do for your bird at home, if he has excessive abnormal feather plucking, before going to the vet??
This bird is a 1 and a half yar old yellow and white cockatiel, it is also male.
There is also another bird living in the same room, but not in the same cage, could this be causeing stress to the bird??
The bird has been sprayed for mites, and is given de-worming solution once a month, he also has lots of toys to play with, and has a good diet. What could be wrong? why could he be plucking his feathers?
