Parrot is plucking its feathers out
Hello there my name is Oliver Stott,
I have an african grey, and i've had her for about 4 months now and Blue (my parrot) has been pulling her feathers out to an extent where she has been bleeding a little bit. What's strange is she is very energetic and vey happy still, she even shows signs of happiness and relaxation by puffing out her feathers ect...
When she pulls out her feathers we dont talk to her or try to stop her because as you know greys see it as a reward if we react to what she is doing.
How can we stop her from doing this. She comes out on her pearch every day, we hold her and take good care of her we talk to her and feed her with different varietys of food such as monkey nuts, grapes, banana, apple, seeds, and much more healthy food which couldnt be the cause of this surely.
Please help if you ucan i will upload some photos of her too and you shall see exactly what i mean.
