Bird started plucking and itching

Your bird might have a bacterial infection or some other health issue. Please read our Feather Damaging Behavior article that was written by an avian vet. Then Find an Avian Vet for your bird right away. Dog/cat vets do not have the experience to help birds most of the time, so please avoid them.

Many birds get bacterial infections from bathing in water dishes that have had water sitting for more than 3 hours and usually have food and poop in it. Please switch your bird over to a Lixit water bottle once you have taken to the vet for medication.
