Broken tail feathers

Xander has pretty much gone through all of his nice,long, beautiful tail feathers. I'll be sleeping and in the middle of the night BLAM! I heard a crash in the cage. I wake up and check the parakeets (they push each other sometimes at night lol) then look over at Xander. He climbs up the cage side and I take him out of the cage. I start checking him to make sure he's ok and two tail feathers have broken Over the next two weeks he falls down, sometimes breaking a feather, sometimes not. Now his tail looks so pathetic. I've decided to just trim at the break and leave him to molt the rest out. On the bright side I could already see a new feather growing!!! Here are some pics of my Chicken but Xander

You can see his new tail feather growing

Re: Broken tail feathers

He is only 6 months old, and seems to be very clumsy lol
And yea I think Xander is still very beautiful too I also think that his tail gives him a little bit of character lol
