Bird pulling flight and tail feathers
by: Tracie

You will need to take your bird to an avian vet for an examination and tests to be run to rule out infection and disease. Sometimes birds pull their feathers because something inside is itching or hurting and they are trying to get to it.

Please read our avian vet's Feather Damaging Behavior article for more information.

If you don't have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet link here.
