Lola on her perch
I have a Green-Wing Macaw that is about 2 years old. A couple of moths ago I noticed alot of down feathers at the bottom of the cage. At first I thought since this is the first molt maybe it is normal. Well she has not grown back any down feathers and the normal feathers that she has she is "chewing" them away. She is not plucking them or chewing the shaft.
Now she is not doing this on her wings, just the body and some of the older tail feathers. She has lots of toys and plays with them all day plus she has a huge cage. This is new to me since neither my African Grey or Cockatoo have ever done this. Is there something I should be doing or is this just a phase? Please help
