    Hello I have a 6 year old white capped pionus named
    Snowcap. Within the past year my work schedule has kept me
    home less. I have noticed she's begun to pick her chest
    feathers. Nothing I do seems to keep her distracted during
    the day, and she is completely disinterested in everything
    I try (fresh fruit, chewable wood, shredable paper). She
    has never been interested in toys. In fact, all that seems
    to make her happy is being with me. I have always left her
    cage door open during the day (she's in a secure room)
    thinking it may keep her occupied, but she's still picking.
    Is there anything I can do?
