Your bird could have a fungal infection or could be allergic to something you are feeding it. It really could be any number for things. I know that feeding your bird sugar significantly increases the possibility of fungal infections though.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird. Only an in person visit will determine what is causing your bird to itch. You can't treat what you don't know, different things require different treatments.

Your bird should be eating 80% high quality pellets like Harrison's or Roudybush and only 20% healthy treats. I don't know what is available where you live, but your avian vet will be able to help you with the proper diet according to where you live.
