Curious the age of your Eclectus?
Do you have him near a heater/hot air blowing near him.
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.
Lastly....you can buy this PLUCK NO MORE. I have no interest
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.
