sun conure with bald spot appearing on yop of head

by Jane Lanzner

My sun conure all of the sunnden has a small bald spot on top of her head. I thought at first one of the other flock members had pooped on her head, so I did not pay to much attention at first. After a few days and a shower I noticed it was still there and looked closer. It was not poop but a small bald spot imerging. It has been there for about two weeks now, not really growing but not getting better either. I think another one of my sun conures is starting to get an identical spot in the same place on his head too. Any clu?

One or more of the other birds are pulling feathers out of the other two's head. Please put your birds in separate cages. You can put the two together who have the bald spots, but it could be them that are hurting each other.

This will escalate into one bird killing another, so do not delay separating them into their own cages. I recommend one cage per bird because unless you have a very large cage, they are overcrowded, and this leads to them killing each other.
