    I have a Patagonian Conure who is doing the same thing. This has
    been going on for three weeks. She has started to lose weight and
    I can't get her to stop. I have even tried to find her a mate and
    can't find one. Everyone has told me that it is breeding season
    and she is doing this for attention. I can't get her to stop. I
    am offering her pellets, seed mix, fresh and dried fruits and
    veggies, macroni and dry cereal. What else can we do to stop this
    behavior? The vet saids it is behavioral and I need to stop her.
    He didn't tell me how.
