    Hi everyone, I have a question. I have a green-cheeked
    conure, 17 years old, named Baby. Since December he's
    been developing some black spots on his feathers followed
    by breakage of those same feathers. I've been taking him
    to the vet every other week for the last 4 months, and
    they don't seem to understand what's causing it. No lice
    or mites, but they treated him anyway. He's been given a
    run of antibiotics. He has a healthy and diverse diet,
    but now the breakage and black spots are spreading. It
    first started on his right wing, and now it's spread to
    both. I don't know what to do.

    His eating and playing habits don't seem to have changed
    at all, though he's begun flapping his wings for no
    apparent reason. Any ideas would be helpful and greatly
    appreciated. Thank you.
