Do you give him a warm bath spray this might help it would be good to have a mixture of bird bath spray and warm water then leave bird in small room with heater until dry.

Dr B suggests that you Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to make sure there is not something wrong internally causing this behavior.

Please read his Feather Damaging Behavior article for more information on this behavior.
