My Quaker parrot who is 4 years old has started plucking her

Customer Question

My Quaker parrot who is 4 years old has started plucking her feathers quite severely mostly from her chest and back but also her legs and shoulders which are now bald, she looks otherwise quite health her eyes are clear and she is lively, I have read that this is common trait among Quakers, she main has a diet of parrot seeds and the occasional bread stick which she loves.
