I'm trying to remember how old this particular macaw is, but I can't. I can tell you however that she has been mated and having chicks for 5 years now. Currently, their nest is blocked off as they will just continue to produce if we don't put a stop to it. I also cannot remember when she started plucking her feathers, but it has been a while. We tried giving her a break from having chicks-nothing, then letting her have chicks- temporary success, changing her diet as much as she will allow it to be changed- still nothing. And yesterday, she either plucked or loss four or five of her tail feathers. I'm concerned but really unsure where to go with her. We have three macaws, she, her mate, and one of their chicks, but she is the only one with this problem. Do you have suggestions?
