    Feather picking is a very bad habit and must be stopped immediately before it becomes entrenched--otherwise you're going to have a bald bird.

    Give her toys, lots of toys, and give her lots of your time.  A tasty new treat, one that makes her work to find a hidden object, could also possibly distract her.  Try playing movies for her or letting her listen to the radio.  Treat her like a small human who needs mental stimulation.  African Greys are the most intelligent of parrots, and their minds must be fed on a daily diet of new sensory information.

    Hello,
    Has anything in your Greys routine changed? Prior to the Plucking?
    Anything change in the Birds Diet? New Cage.....New Household pet?
