When birds are very unhappy and restless in their habitats, feather plucking can occur. If you find your pet bird plucking its feathers, consult an avian veterinarian right once to rule out conditions like psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD). If medical factors for your bird’s plucking have been checked out, you must think about how you house, feed, and interact with your bird. Keeping your pet in a small or filthy cage, offering nutrient-deficient food, and not paying enough attention to your bird can all lead your bird to pluck his or her feathers. Maintain the health and happiness of your bird by doing all that you can to provide the best care possible.
If you feel your pet is ill, contact your veterinarian right away. Always consult your veterinarian for health-related inquiries, as they have evaluated your pet, are familiar with the pet’s medical history, and can provide the best suggestions for your pet.
