My Parrot's butt feathers are falling off...?

Thursday morning I woke up and I found that my african grey's cage was covered with feathers, and when I looked at her I found that her butt was bare. This has happened for a consecutive 5 mornings and now her butt is completely bare. Is this normal? She is 4 years old and this has never happened before.

No, this is not normal. Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

If the bird has an infection or tumor, it may be picking at itself to get to the pain. Please do NOT delay in getting your bird to an avian vet.
