My Sun Conure
We have a 5 Year Old Sun Conure named Cheerio. We purchased him through a local pet store and at the same time purchased his cage mate a green quaker parrot we named Pretty Bird, both were very young at time of purchase.
My problem is that my Sun Conure has lost his feathers around his neck and I noticed 2 spots on the top of his head that looked "plucked"....I am thinking Pretty Bird is doing this as that bird is EXTREMELY protective. Cheerio is not acting ill and Cheerio was checked out by our avian vet when we purchased him but not since. The quaker is not a friendly bird with anyone but my husband where as the sun conure loves me (I am home all day with them both)and will "snip" at anyone else if he is not in the mood.
Could the quaker be inflicting these issues upon the sun conure? They have a very large cage, but I do have a smaller cage that I can put the quaker in if needed.
Thank you so much for any help/direction you can give!
