So i have two tiels (both 5 months old) and at first i thought i one of them was going through their molt but that wasnt the case, the other tiel had been plucking the other ones cheek feathers

heres a picture, you can see the ear and the other tiel has been starting to pluck the neck feathers. The tiel that is being agro is biting the other ones feet so i thought the best thing to do was to separate them. The the thing is the one that has its feathers plucked has not been defending itself and instead will go back to the other one, my mum and i are debating wether or not we should take it to the vet.

Plucking is very difficult and complicated issue, I don't think vet can help much. Yes, separate the one who did the plucking. Feather of The one being plucked will grow back very soon.
