Feather picking 2 year old military macaw

by Dave
(Winnipeg canada)

Our 2ish year old macaw has been feather picking for the last couple months. our avian vet has done a couple test and her health seems to behold. we had her for a year and a few months before this started.It must be environmental. I have a large air purification system running...our humidity is good and she gets lots of attention. our vet has suggested a collar th prevent her from accessing the feathers. I have been spraying her regularly with alo juice and water but it doesn't seem to be helping. any advise?

Please read Dr B's Feather Damaging Behavior article for more information on this problem.

Dr B has not been answering questions the past couple of weeks, but he would likely have you read this article since he can not examine your bird in person.

Please study our Toxic / Non-toxic for birds list also to make sure you have not added something to the environment that might be causing this.
