Mine parrot also started feather plucking, after several expensive trips to the vet which didn't help at all, I realised it was the new plug in air freshner I had started using, stopped using it and all is well again, thankfully.

Dr B suggests that you read the Feather Damaging Behavior article and then take the bird to see an avian vet for an exam.

If you do not have an avian vet, you can look on our Find an Avian Vet page. There are links on this page to websites that you can search for the one that is closest to you.
