Bird picking itself
by: Tracie

If your bird is chewing it's feathers, then please read our Feather Damaging Behavior article that was written by an avian vet.

If your bird is picking itself, then there is likely something internally wrong internally like an infection, tumor or disease. No matter what, you will need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

picking goffin
by: Anonymous

You should get your goffin to a vet asap. It could have an allergy to something, an infection, dry skin or could be nervous or bored. This is something that is very hard to detect and once they start it is hard to stop them. Make sure you take it to an avian vet not a dog or cat vet.

Good luck!!!
