Very interesting Karen , this is the first I've read about it. Thank you for the link. I see you have 2 green wings are they a bonded pair? I also have 2 one for 17 years and his buddy just a few months. They bonded and it's been a nightmare since. I'd like to hear about yours.BW
OH's CAG started plucking after we lost his CAG mate. He has a TAG pal now. We found a recipe were you put a teaspoon of rose oil and a teaspoon of glycerin in a litre spray bottle of water shake it up well before use each time and spray them once a day in the morning. Spray later in the day if needed, but make sure they are dry by bedtime. Its seems to work to stop them plucking with a lot of birds as I have passed this recipe on to friends and they have had success with it too. You need to buy food grade rose oil and glycerin We get them from a pharmacy over here.
