Good news, he's not plucking himself. :)

It takes a while for new feathers to grow in. Just be patient and enjoy your new parrot!
I've been called 'birdbrained' before, but somehow I don't think this is what they meant. say:hah-nay

Melika is right! Your bird looks a bit patchy, but in a healthy way. I would not worry. Give your bird a few weeks and everything will be back to normal. Besides, I see feather loss on the back of the head--this is a place where his/her beak cannot get. :) I think it's pretty safe to say you're in good shape, and so is your birdy! :)

Best Wishes, :wink:
