Pin Feather Casing

I have a green cheek conure. She is feed zupreem fruit blend pellets. She is showered 2 x per week. She has dry yellowish debris around her oil gland. Her tail feathers are covered in a thick casing that she needs help to preen. What could be the cause.



I would take her to an Avian Vet to be checked out. It could be due to something in the diet, or something going on internally. She really needs  bloodwork to have a better idea of what is going on.

Take care,
