Peachface plucking until he bleeds

My peachface, Joey, is plucking himself until he bleeds. He has a bald spot by his neck and now he is plucking his skin. We are very concerned with him. A friend mentioned that he might be bored so I bought him new toys. He was ok for a while. He even started showing new fuzzy growth but he is at it again. He's fine everywhere else. It's just that one spot. Any suggestions?

Dr B can not help because he can not examine your bird. He suggests that you take your bird to an avian vet to be examined.

We have some articles on feather plucking and destruction you might want to read on our Parrot Training page also.

Let us know what you find out.
