Bird with lice?
by: Tracie

I think it would be unlikely your bird has lice, unless you can see them crawling on the bird or something. The best thing to do is take your bird to an avian vet to be examined.

The vet will ask you all kinds of questions and run tests to rule out disease and other health problems. It is good to take the bird before what ever is wrong gets worse. Also, birds can develop a habit of plucking so that once they are well they continue to pluck.
