Preening or plucking, how to know when it is a problem?
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
I have an Indian ringneck that is 10 months old.
Lately when I hold it it seems to preen itself by pulling out some of it's down feathers.
How can I tell if this is just preening or is it an early plucking problem. It still has all it's feathers and looks very healthy. How do I know when it is a plucking problem.
