My sun conure is loosing lots of feathers

I had my sun conure for over a yr.. I got her when she was a baby. She was very spoiled and was the only pet i owned. I recently adopted a african grey and soon enough my sun conure keeps loosing feathers. Now my grey has no feathers and the previous owner said she was a plucker.. Could the grey had transmitted any feather related disease to my sun conure, or what is going on??

Yes, you need to take both birds to an avian vet for an exam.

As far as feather damaging behavior, please read this Feather Damaging Behavior article written by our avian vet.
