Senegal ~ Is it Molting or Plucking?????
(Myrtle Beach, SC)
Help!!!! My senegal parrot (approx. 4 years of age) has just recently (in the past 2 weeks) began to pluck at her feathers. It started down her back along the wings. Now it looks like "downy feathers" all over her back and now starting on her chest.
I don't see bald spots nor do I see pin feathers .... so I don't know if this is molting or something more serious. Took her to a "bird" store and they said she looks good, eyes are clear and she's eating good. Maybe I should go to a vet but didn't want to spend the $$$$ is this is something I can deal with. Thanks for any info!
