    Scab on Baby Budgie’s Wing

    Hey guys! Today was the first time I misted Ollie (not a fan!) but I noticed a scab on his right wing after he was wet. Is this from a lost blood feather? Do I need to be worried or do anything for him? He is not babying it at all and still flaps both wings and gets around normally. Thank you!!!

    Update on Pebble--the cockatiel who's original owner cut off the tail and wings

    So Pebble has been doing well overall but last night he had a night fright at about 4 am. As far as I know this is his first one as his previous owner (the one who chopped his feathers) said he never had one before. The problem is that Pebble must have broken blood feathers as he was bleeding...

    What Is Your Opinion On Blood Feathers?

    Hello everyone! I have endured several years of my sun conure being incredibly clumsy, and as a result, fractured/broken blood feathers amuck! At first we were extremely worried about them and would pull them out immediately more out of fear than for logic's sake. However as the years have gone...
