quaker with missing neck feathers, red sore skin

(NSW, Sydney, Australia)
My ten month old quaker, male, has missing neck feathers and the area looks sore and red, irritated. He lives with his girlfriend, another quaker, female, and she seems ok...she is a little bossy and iv seen her peck him sometimes.
We have moved 3 times in 8 months and now we are settled, and have a new puppy. Do u think the bird is stressed? He is very attached to me and i used to have on my shoulder always and now i only have him out once a day.
