Senegal Parrot losing feathers

by Shelli

Hello,

My 8 year old Senegal Parrot has been losing feathers around her neck. At times the feathers appear to be growing back...only to disappear a few days later. Otherwise she is in excellent health.
Any information/advise is appreciated!

Thanks

Dr B recommends you take your bird to an avian vet soon for a check up. It is hard to tell if the bird is plucking his feathers or something else. Either way, the bird needs to be examined in person for a proper treatment to be suggested.

If you feel your bird is plucking his feathers, you might want to read the articles on our Parrot Training page.

Let us know what you find out.
