yes he did have feathers in this spot before, but would this now affect his flying, and should i just let him heal on his own by not flying for a bit?
oh okay, but does it look like he's severely hurt or anything?It does look like he has had a bump. Young tiels are often unsteady on their feet and will often fall from perches, so it's always best to start them off with just a few low perches until they have had more practice and can perch securely. Those feathers will grow back.
Yea, can see a couple of small pin feathers coming in already.Those feathers will grow back.
