Feather loss Nanday Conure

by Jeanette Nelson
(Alexandria, MN)

in the past few weeks my Nanday Conure has lost her breast feathers, I have had her for 28 years, the pet store didn't know for sure how old it was when I bought it. Been doing research but haven't really found what could be the cause?

Conure losing chest feathers

You need to determine if your bird is picking the feathers or losing the feathers. Either way, you need to take the bird to an avian vet for an exam. It can't be determined over the Internet if your bird has an infection or a disease or why/it it would be pulling out it's feathers.

Please read this Feather Damaging Behavior article written by our avian vet for more information on this issue.
