My lovebird has a bald patch under one of its legs and part of its belly, any idea why?

Bird with bald patch
by: Tracie

The bird is likely picking at the area, and why it is doing this can not be determined over the Internet. It could be an allergy to something you are feeding it, it could be an infection or a tumor inside and it is picking at the area to get to the itch or pain. There are numerous things that cause this.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
