Customer Question

I have three cockatiel chicks recently weaned. The youngest is 61 days old. I recently noticed that they all have new bald patches on their heads, and they look like they have been plucking. Why are they doing this and how do I stop it? They are in a separate cage from the parents, but do see them and spend time with them every day.
