    ----------
    calm down. The bird pluckingm it's feathers is a sign that
    it's lonely. If you begin spending more time with it, it
    should stop plucking its feathers. If it continues even
    after it gets alot of tlc from you, take it to a vet and
    have it examined for fleas. (Those cause bad itching which
    can be a result of feather plucking, mane case is loneliness
    though)
