Hello, my African Grey has started to pluck some feathers.I see it sometimes put his head under his wings and start to pluck, but only the really small feathers, I heard that it does that if it was really bored and lonely,but Im really taking good care of it.and please can you tell me what should I give him to eat? he just eats the seeds with a mix of corn and other kinds of seeds and he is still small.

African grey plucking and diet
by: Tracie

Dr B would like you to read his Feather Damaging Behavior article and the Switching Birds to Pellets article. Both of these articles will help you with the feather plucking and the proper diet for your parrot.

Because we don't live in your country, we have no clue as to what you can get to feed your bird there. I have customers from your country that use the International Orders link on this site to get items from the US to them.

I hope these things help.
