Bird keeps losing tail feathers
by: Tracie

I don't know. If you allow your parrot out of the cage on the floor or around people that try to grab the bird, it could be that it released it's feathers due to almost being stepped on or someone grabbing at the bird. (Or even a dog or cat jumping at the bird.)

If you do not have any of the above situations, then you will need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be. Your bird may have a disease.
