    Not sure, but maybe molting and/or parasites. Check him over really good for mites/lice and mabe take a sample in to the vet to have a fecal float done to see if he needs to be wormed. In the meantime you could give him some high protein treats like cat food or scrambled eggs.

    Have you wormed him lately? I have had similar issues especially with my roos and worms were the likely culprit. Does he have any other symptoms like diarrhea?
