    I wanted to get some tips to help my Goffin too. She is 2
    years old (I have had her since she was about 8 weeks old)
    and has started plucking under her wing feathers. This
    started over the last 4 weeks. I have done everything that
    I can think of...or everything that I have read in
    books/magazines and she is still doing it. She has lots of
    toys and I rotate them frequently. I have recently added
    toys that are advertised as "great for pluckers," but they
    don't seem to be of much help. I am showering her more
    frequently, b/c I live in in the midwest and it has been
    rather cold here lately. She is still getting the same
    amount of attention; however, when we have our cuddle time
    she seems to be more interested in picking in the same
    areas, rather than just enjoying the cuddle time like she
    used to. We did add a new bird to our house, but that was
    about 5 months ago. She has not been to the vet since she
    started plucking, but has been to an avian vet within the
    last 6 months. I don't think she is sick...besides the
    plucking all of her other behavior is normal. I am just
    looking for any suggestions. I will love her even is she is
    bald, but I don't want her to be stressed and want to do
    what is best for her. Any advice is appreciated thanks!
