white feather spots

by Brenda Tridive

my female green cheek conure is around 1 and 1/2 years old. she has always been a very healthy bird...almost never got sick! But now, I have noticed that she has white spots on her feathers. She doesn't show any signs of illness but I am a little concerned about these new spots.What are they and how can I stop them from reoccurring?
