Ms. Janet Pickard's Goffin problem

by Janet

I have a Goffin Cockatoo that has pulled out all of her long wing feathers and her tail feathers. She did this once before but not to this extent.
Is she unhappy or something else going on with her - what can I do for her?
I haven't changed anything with her, food, cage, toys, nothing different.

Ms Janet Pickards Goffin

Hi Janet.

I have a Goffin also. He is a heavy preener. His feathers look tattered. But he has never done this.
Has she been to the avian vet and had a full check up? You may want to do this.
I am thinking that your G2 is bored. Change around the perches and exchange the toys for new ones. Get her some shredder toys, and puzzle toys. Something to keep her busy.
Are you bathing her regular. I give my G2 a bath 2-3 times a week.
Is she gettin enough natural light. I suggest you get her some full spectrum light.
