Plucking until she bleeds
My 16 1/2 year old halfmoon conure has been plucking her feathers for about 5 years.Seems like it started after she laid her first eggs. She lets the feathers grow in at times and then plucks them all out again.
Tonight is the first time I saw blood on her neck. I am hoping she plucked a feather (only down left on her chest now) and that it is nothing more than that. She does not like new toys put into her cage, so even if shes bored, she is afraid of new things in her cage. I now have an eclectus parrot a cage next to hers. I don't know if this has anything to do with her now bleeding. The other parrot has only been here about two months.
Any ideas? I am so afraid of losing her to her plucking.
