He has just snipped the feather himself. I guess neither of us were man enough to pull it out lol. I think ill just leave it be and let him malt. I cant wait for all his new feathers to grown in. He seems really proud of himself now, head bobbing on his perch and doing his nails.

Anyone else's Parrot turned them into a girl or just mine lol? slightest thing and the cotton wool is out. I was never this bad with other animals I've had. I think its the personalities they have. He is my little boy and I love him so much.

I'm gonna look into some avian veterinary courses and learn more about Parrots and health care. How cool and fulfilling would it be helping them feel better every day Its like 30 miles to the nearest avian vet where I live. The UK kind of sucks for that. I really appreciate you guys and the forum, god bless you all x

Mine has done the exact opposite and turned me into a no-nonsense authority figure lol. And I've always totally babied my reptiles/amphibians because they seem to appreciate it and become better behaved/more tolerant of humans. Kiwi, on the other hand, needs his humans to be in charge, to command [his] respect and to show no fear at all times or else he'd be running the show and then it would just be one big clusterflock around here.

I'm glad your baby dealt with the feather as he saw fit and is now back to being happy and playful again

Re: Torn tail feather, help please.

Is it Molt time for birdies? Xander just flew over said peekaboo, flew back to his cage and left a tail feather on me. There was no blood. I'm guessing it big molt time? He hasn't had a big one yet in the 9 months I had him where his big feathers drop out. Been finding small green ones in his cage all week and pins I just never experienced his big feathers dropping out. I'm not freaking out though lol this time. Can I expect more tail feathers coming out soon and flight feathers?

In honesty ive been looking forward to his big molt because he came with such damaged feathers so I'm excited he is gonna loose them and get shiney new ones. Not that he isn't perfect in my eyes x
