Frayed feathers on my Green cheecked conure

Customer Question

My green cheecked conure is in great form but I have noticed that his feathers look very frayed at the ends; he gets loads of seeds and fruit and he flys everywhere. He is about 18 months old. He recently lost 4 tail feathers, but they just fell out. I am worried that he is stressed or I am not giving him something in his diet. Any advice would be appreciated!Tara (and JellyBean the Parrot)
