Conure plucking

The first thing you need to do is take the bird to be examined by an avian vet to make sure there is not a health issue causing it to pluck. Please read our Feather Damaging Behavior article written by an avian vet to understand more about this problem.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what might be the cause and what the potential treatment might be. It could be stress, but it could be a tumor, internal infection, allergy or disease.
