hahns macaws tail feathers have become really short

My hahns macaw has lost most of his tail feathers within a few months, but not singularly,doesnt seem to be plucked out, and is still in a straight line,but the tail has just got shorter and shorter and is now almost as short as his wings. Tail feathers are short, ragged and looked like they have rubbed short by friction? his cage is proper parrot cage and correct size, but he does have lots of toys now. whats causing this?

Tail feathers getting short

If your bird walks around on the bottom of the cage or has perches near the sides so that the tail feather rub the bars when it turns, this will happen.
