Do you handle you bird alot? I have had a greencheek & gold
capped conures and both are very spoiled and handled alot. I
had the same thing happen and spent a couple hundred dollars
for a vet to do tests and then I found out that is caused
from the birds getting handled. I know how you might feel I
freaked out thinking they had got into something or ate
something they shouldn't have. But it turns out that they
are fine and just having lots of fun.
