Hi everyone. I have a quaker parrot and hes a year and a month old and yesterday i noticed him pulling out a few feathers, then i went to his cage and saw so many feathers down there! I think hes molting, but do birds pull out their feathers when they molt? I don't see any skin showing, but i can see where he's missing feathers because where there is usually green feathers, now its the under layer, the white feathers that keep him warm. Its mostly under his wings and his thighs, some on his chest.
