    Curious the age of your Eclectus?

    Do you have him near a heater/hot air blowing near him.

    Winter months....
    Provide a natural sunlight lamp. Mist bird 3 times a
    day...with one heavy soaking.
    Eliminate all processed foods. Like cheerios, etc.NONE!

    I agree with others....Change toys around.

    DO NOT PET the bird. Hormones may have been stimulated. can buy this PLUCK NO MORE. I have no interest
    in this....

    The same happened to my Aru. I did all the above. The
    plucking stopped within a few days.

    I actually think I dried her feathers through the heat vents.

    Try! I think the above will work.

    Dont waste money on a Vet. I doubt its bacterial.
