    Hello!

    I have an 18 year old Greenwing and am experiencing the exact
    same thing, exact same symptoms. I do think the vet is the
    next necessary step. The interesting thing is that the picking
    comes in waves. We have good days and bad days. I also have
    two blue& golds, with the same diet and exercise, but no
    symptoms.

    I will bring her in to the vet after the holidays. I would
    also like to hear what you discover. I am currently removing
    peanuts from my macaws diet, because, through observation,
    when exposed to alot of peanuts or peanut butter, it seems the
    picking is far worse.

    It is painful to watch and hear this happening. I will keep
    you posted, and appreciate if you do same

    Thanks
    Matt
