It would be best to take your bird to a vet who specializes in Avian medicine, if available.  Your bird may need a skin biopsy, fecal analysis and blood work to determine the cause of this severe problem.

Causes for feather loss are quite extensive and can include: Skin parasites, Gastrointestinal parasites (giardia, and others), Fungal or bacterial or other microbial skin infections, Atopy (skin allergies), Endocrine disorders, kidney disease, and many many more.
