I have the same problem

My male lovebirds show the exact same problem, any suggestions as why?

Editor's note: You need to take your bird to an avian vet, it could be cancer.

Dr B can not tell you what is wrong or how to treat this over the Internet. He suggests that you take your bird to see an avian vet to determine what is wrong and prescribe the proper treatment.
