I love Fudgy's coloring! It's very pretty. What do your budgies think of the Peas in a Pod? Do they get jealous? :giggle:

I've not heard of conures picking at themselves unless they are sick. I don't think you need to worry about it happening, but if it ever would, get him/her checked immediately by a vet. Lot's of plucking starts out with a physical cause.

Are you saying Conures plucking are never behavioral related, just when they are sick?

I don't think one could say never, but in general plucking would begin in response to an illness that causes discomfort. You should have any species of bird checked by a vet if plucking begins. It often begins because the bird is uncomfortable and then becomes habitual.

If I saw one of my birds plucking, I'd immediately go the vet. I've never owned a plucking bird before, and it would scare me. :(

The only plucking I've seen in conures is in the larger species, but it does happen. Like with any bird, there's 1,000's of different reasons for plucking. The conures I've seen pluck have been behavior related. Plucking is so hard to diagnose the reasons behind.
