My budgie Sammy, keeps plucking at his feathers and it's starting to look really bad or should I say it already does. I'm not really sure why he's doing it and I am not sure if it's just an irritation thing etc or if he needs the attention of an Avian vet.

Before he started really going at his feathers, him and the 3 other budgies (2 in one cage, 2 in the other) I have were all treated for mite and lice using Avitrol Mite and Lice Spray. I made sure to wash the cage, tray, toys and food/water bowls, taking care to remove wooden perches and replace them with natural ones. That was done only last week and will have to be done again for another 2 weeks. (My local vet advised so).
And after that I noticed his destructive behaviour. I'm not sure if it could be just dry skin or what ...

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :eek:

I don't see any evidence of feather plucking in the picture you posted.
Are you sure your budgie isn't simply molting?

Can you post a picture of the area(s) where the feathers have been plucked?
