hi, my 4yr old African Grey (m) is always bald at the back of his neck, you cant see his skin , but his long feathers are gone leaving like soft down underneath. when he is playing with his toys i have seen him pulling them out with his claws, almost seems like its when he's excited, because he loves his toys and plays frantically with them. is this normal?I have never seen him peck at himself.
