Post: feather plucking
Posted by Melissa on 5/25/08
I have adopted 2 blue and gold macaws from someone who
didnt really spend a lot of time with them, due to work
commitments. I have built them a huge outdoor avairy and
they go to bed in the evening in an indoor avairy. They
have a lot of attention now, but the female still
continues to pluck her feathers. When she isnt plucking,
her mate does it for her!!
The vet insists there is no medical reasons for this
behaviour, so it seems it is just down to habit.
Any ideas for prevention or cure will be muchly
