Bird losing color

This probably related to nutrition. I suspect your bird has nutritional deficiencies. If he is not on a pellet diet, then this is most likely the problem. Harrison's is the best and should make up 80% of the diet. If your bird is eating pellets, then switch to a better one. You should also have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian.
