Lovebird loosing feathers

by Barb

My Lovebird has recently lost some feathers around the neck and a little under the feathers. I have always given her a variety diet, seeds, fresh fruit, and mash with vitamins. I have not taken her out much recently and was wondering if feathers come out if they are depressed or lonely. I noticed today only the feathers are out and will besure to hold her every day. Pls tell me what else could be the problem.

Thanks, the feathers seem to becoming back, could have beeen change of season (getting colder where we are and she's not let outside for fresh sun) and lack of interaction with the family. Thanks for the tips,much appreciated!
