Hi there! I purchased my green cheeked conure about a month ago. Not sure the age, but pretty sure he's under a year old. He's definetly somewhere between 5 - 8 months. His name is Pico, and we spend all day together. He comes everywhere with me and wants to be with me all the time. Recently, I've noticed some patches of down feathers on his chest. I've looked at his skin, and it looks normal. In the patches of grey down feathers, I see no pin feathers coming in. He has been loosing quite a lot of feathers lately, but no flight feathers. He's usually super loud and playful, but now he's quiet and likes to be by himself more. I give him bathes everyday. I live in Arizona, and it's starting to get hot here. He eats pellets from the brand Zupreem. He has a pretty big cage with lots of toys. There has been some changes lately tho. Getting him a new cage, getting new birds, having acrylic nails that he likes to bite, and obviously a change in weather. Is he plucking or molting? I was told by a lady at a bird store that he's molting, but I just want to make sure. Someone please help!!
