my parrot ( his name is 2pac) had the same problem at 1 year age, the man at the local pet store gave me a medicine, 2 drops in the daily water for 5 days. It worked. he has beautiful feathers now and will be two years old in march.

Bird missing feathers on chest and tail
by: Tracie

Dr B suggests that you take the bird to see an avian vet soon. He can not tell what is wrong over the Internet. An avian vet will be able to get all the background information and run tests to determine what might be wrong.

Sometimes it is due to a lack of nutrition, sometimes stress and sometimes an internal illness among other things.

Dr B would like you to read the Feather Damaging Behavior article he wrote for more information.
