    Have a DNA sample of your bird's blood and have him checked
    for PBFD. It's a virus that is airborne and affects the
    immunity system of your bird. It commonly known as Beak &
    Feather Disease. It's contagious and the only way to check
    is through a blood sample. There is no cure but start giving
    him some vitamins A drops on his food and in his water until
    you can have him tested. I'm not trying to scare you but
    this can be true.
