green cheeked conures molt

My conure is three years old. I think he is going through a molt. Losing feathers around neck. Noticeable. Found feathers on floor. Is this normal?

Conure losing feathers around neck

It is not normal if you see bare spots. When a bird is molting, you do see a lot of feathers on the floor etc. and you often see pin feathers (white stick looking things sticking out) but you should never see bare spots.

If you are seeing bare spots, it is possible that your bird has an infection or disease. 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.
