Itches a lot
by: Linda

When birds are molting, they tend to scratch more than other times. Birds molt twice a year--at the end of summer and the beginning of Spring. The new feathers coming in make them feel like a pincushion and so the itch.

If your bird is NOT molting, I would take him to vet to check for parasites. Mites are so small that you cannot see them, and vet would need to use a special light to see them.
