Plucking Rosella

Rather than quoting all that is already on this site, please use the search box on the Parrot Questions page and type in the word plucking. You will be able to read all the answers the vet and others have written on the subject.

If the bird only plucks during breeding season, it is likely that it wishes to mate. There are no guarantees that any bird you get for him will breed with him or that they will even like each other.

There are some natural remedies and bird sprays that the vet recommends that we sell on this site, if you are interested in those also.

It is always recommended that you take your bird to an avian vet to rule out other causes of plucking.

I hope things work out for you.
