Post: mulican cockatoo plucking feathers
Posted by Donna on 10/14/08
Help please. I have a mulican cockatoo named Mango. She
has been with me for 5 years. She is a very friendly. She
had one owner before us. She is about 8 years old. She
started plucking her chest feathers about a week ago. I
immediately took her to the vet and of course the have done
the blood work which cameback with no issues. So... we
are assuming she is doing a mental pluck. Nothing has
changed in her environment. The vet gave us antiobotics
and a few other medicines which she has been taking for a
week. She continues to pluck to the bleeding point. I
have tried a sock around her neckso she can notget to her
chest, however, if youknow birds theycan reach anywhere.
Can anyone help with a way to keep her away from her chest
so it can heal?
