my kakariki has been loosing quite a bit of his small feathers from his body. this has happened before and he went back to normal however, i’m still concerned. is it normal for kakarikis to moult? he plucked one of his back tails but the small feathers fall naturally when he flies. do the feathers grow back fast? and should i give him any specific food or vitamins?

All birds molt. :) As long as you aren't seeing bald patches, it's likely nothing to worry about. Feathers take several weeks to grow in.
