Bird picking it's legs

Hello Steve,

If your bird is biting itself until it bleeds, then you need to take the bird to an avian vet to see what is bothering it.

Dr. B would love to help, but without examining the bird it would be impossible for him to say what is wrong and he would not be able to prescribe what the bird might need.

There could be a number of different causes including a fungal infection, bacterial dermatitis, allergies, trauma, and other things.
