    I have an 11 year old Congo African Grey who has great
    feather and I have a baby, just under a year who had great
    feather until today. About two months ago I brought home a
    female grey who is plucked from neck tail. My little baby
    has never plucked. They all three get equal amount of
    attention. Today I came home and she has plucked out ALL of
    her tail feathers and has chewed quite a bit of her wing and
    back feathers. I have had her since last May and nothing
    has changed except for the new baldie. What is happening?
    Why is she chewing/plucking? Is she possibly learning bad
    habits from the plucker? Please help! I saw her and cried
    for an hour. I feel so terrible. I have read all over the
    place online that birds will pluck if they are unhappy. I
    just don't understand how she can be unhappy. My 11 year
    old male is just fine. My baby! Please help!
