Feather picking correlations

My orange wing is agitated with new feather growth on her tail. She now has no tail feathers as she pulls them out when they are just blood feathers. The last episode coincided with her curling her toes and not straightening them out all the time, even when she is trying to walk. Is there a neurological connection between the tail and the toes?

Hi There, take your bird to a vet at once he seems to be sick. I'm very sorry for birds when these things do happen. I know how worried you're and you've a right to be; please don't delay with this, take him to the vet immediately. I hope he gets better quickly because feather picking is not a pretty sight. It is not healthy and your bird it not comfortable. I wish you and your bird good luck and God bless!
