I have a sun conure that is pulling out his chest feathers and I was wondering if it normal. At first I thought it might be because I started working a lot more hours but other than that I don't know.

Sun conure pulling out feathers
by: Tracie

It very well be because you are not home as much and the bird is stressed. My Green Cheeked Conure started to destroy her feathers when I went out of town for a couple of weeks and my husband stayed behind. He was only home at night and so she did not get held all day like she was used to.

Please read the articles we have on feather plucking and feather destruction on our Parrot Training page for ideas that might help your bird.
