Is the feathers loss dangerous for green ring-neck parakeet? Today I noticed that my parakeet is losing feathers from some spots, is it dangerous?

feather loss. . .

If your ring-neck is molting you have nothing to worry about. If your ring-neck is feather-plucking you have to find out why. Regardless of what may or may not be going on, it's time to take your ring-neck to an avian veterinarian.
If you need to find an avian veterinarian check out this website: http://www.aav.org it is the Association of Avian Veterinarians website. They can also be reached at P.O.Box 811720 Boca Raton, FL 33481-1720 telephone:(561)393-8901 fax:(561)393-8902
Rule out any health issues (nutritional deficiencies, behavioral problems, etc. . .). (personal information removed)

Good luck,
