lorikeet losing breast feathers

my scaley breasted lorikeet is pulling out his breast fathers and there are no visible pin feathers underneath. Does he have some kind of disease or is this a stress related issue?

The only way to know, is for you to Find an Avian Vet to examine the bird in person. It could be an infection, disease or stress or something else.

Please read our Feather Damaging Behavior article written by our avian vet for more information.
