    There is a semi-wild female Pekin on a canal near me. She has recently plucked a number of her own feathers above her wing.
    The photos are from a week ago, and things have gotten much worse since.

    The skin appears pink and healthy underneath.

    Any thoughts as to what the problem or a potential solution would be?

    Thanks in advance!
