Why are the legs, chest and abdomen feathers thin and brown now? He is four years old, they used to be bright green and plush. Is he sick?

He is either sick or eating an extremely poor diet. If bird is eating all seed diet, then, skin and feathers will look like a bird being slowly starved to dearh.

Before changing to organic pellets, please take bird to be examined by an Avian Vet in your driving area to make sure bird is not suffering from an infection or other physical cause.

Changing from seeds to organic pellets takes time, and here is link to article written by an avian vet about how to go about it:
