He’s still moulting !
Now his head seems to have finished and we are onto his wings… I’m glad he dropped one of the ones with the stress bar. I’m guessing that may have been when he was moved into the incubator as it’s near the tip - early growth ?
I find lots of various sized feathers every morning, he often quickly stabs at his wings right now, I expect its uncomfortable and itchy with the new feathers coming. I’ve never seen him pull any colour ones out. (Just the grey under fluff during heatwave)

Ooooh wow! That edge is so pretty :)
Thank you Cottonoid, I’ve told him for you 😄
We had a lovely shower today he got thorough wet and I saw at least 3 new feathers through. Hope the next ones are as vibrant.
