    Hi!
    Not an easy one to answer.
    Can you think of any reason this may of started.
    Change in you relationship. Moved her.
    Stress or skin health, irritation, dry skin, poor diet, can start them down this track
    Stopping. As this has only just started you may be able to help ease this.
    If you cannot figure any reason, then a vet check could be in order.
    If you can find out a reason, then you can work on stopping her.
    R.I.P my little ones.

    Re: my grey parrot

    Have you recently moved to another home, or have you had anyone move in with you recently? Have you changed the diet at all recently, or added or took away some foods that normally your parrot would eat? Have you taken a job that requires you to work more hours, so that she is alone more every day? Do the droppings look good, or do you see some change in them? Is she eating as usual, or has she began eating less? Has she been frightened of anything unusual around her, or at night? There are many different issues that can cause a bird to pluck. Sometimes it is just boredom, but since she is older I would tend to think it is something that has happened or a health issue that "might" be the cause.

    Since she is up in years, I feel that a Vet check-up would be recommended. Parrots no matter the species do hide their illnesses very cleverly, so on the side of caution, I feel a Vet check would be your best option.
