Hair falling off neck
by: Angela

You weren't very descriptive as to where feathers are falling off. If it's the back of the neck, it could be molting. If it's the front of the neck, the bird could be plucking itself. If the feathers that are coming off are small, white and fluffy, it's just their downy feathers that they usually pull out when they are grooming themselves. If they are actual pin feathers and balding is occurring, you need to take your bird to an avian vet for a check up.
