Is something biting my bird?

I am hoping you can help me. My blue fronted amazon parrot has started to "twitch" in a way where she looks like she's dancing. I know this sounds weird, but it's almost like something is tickling/biting her and then she extends her legs, wiggles and then pulls out her feathers. She has plucked out all of her feathers on her feet and back, but she has not plucked any from her Wings.

I think what you've described sounds like your bird may have mites. Please take your bird to an Avian vet and get him/her checked. This is terrible and if you've other birds very soon they may get it and also you.
Good luck!

Bird needs avian vet

You need to have your bird checked by an avian vet, not a dog/cat vet. That is the only way to diagnose what is wrong and also to get the exact treatment your bird needs.
