    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?
