Plucking Feathers

by Kristin Russell-Perkins

I have a Goffin Cockatoo and within the past week he has destryed his cage ripped all his toys down destryed his bowls and has started plucking his tail feathers. He is out of his cage and with us as long as we are home and is fine when hes out of his cage why would he have started doing this?
