Plum Headed Parrot
I am having a female plum headed parrot about 1 years old,her dropping and behaviour is normal but her quality of feather specially on head is becoming poorer, and she is loosing her feather from her head and around her eyes so what may be the reason? Or is it molt and normal that she well develop new feathes?Or she is suffering from some disease?

When I've seen feather loss on the head and around the eyes it's usually been due to a feather/skin mite. Have you noticed any other behavior that might indicate stress in her? Has she been scratching her face and head or rubbing it on the cage bars?  It wouldn't hurt to take her in for a skin scraping to rule out parasites.

Usually when a bird is molting, the feathers gradually drop and you'll soon see the new pin feathers coming in.
