My M2 (Moluccan cockatoo) has a problem and I thought I’d run it by you.
I’ve had birds all of my life, parakeets, cockatiels, amazons and this is my first ‘too. I got him as a baby and have had him for 10 years.
He seems very content as far as I can tell.
About 6 months ago he molted 3 feathers at the same time from his tail. The new ones sprouted, of course. But over the course of this six months he continues to pick his tail skin raw.
I know M2’s are notorious for self-mutiliation. I don’t think that’s the issue.
