odd feather plucking

I have a pair of timnehs and it seems like the female plucks the feathers off the male's head. she doesn't do it to herself but just the male. I was told that they do this to tell the male she wants to mate? any information on this and how to get this to stop? thanks in advance.

Re: odd feather plucking

Do you have a bonded pair in the same cage? If so then there is not much you can do about it. Otherwise I would suggest you keep them each in their own cage.

I do have a bonded pair. Can I still separate them? how long will it take for his feathers to grow back if I separate them?
