feathers missing

i have a 2 yr old green cheek conure just recently we have noticed that on the top of his head and back of neck he has lost some feathers , but it seems that the long quills are still there . he is eating drinking and bathing normally and spends most of his time with my 14yr old daughter as usual . we have never seen him pluck any feathers out himself . please help us ! :)

Dr B can not tell you what is going on, because he can not examine your bird. He suggests that you take your bird to an avian vet for an exam.

Please read the Feather Damaging Behavior article for a better understanding of this behavior and possible causes.
