wow this moult is more stressful for me than it is my parrot :banghead: i’m back again with another question lol

my parrot has been moulting for over a month now and today I noticed she had a broken feather hanging out of her wing, so I checked her wings by opening them up and noticed that both her wings are very uneven and she had a lot of broken feathers.

I gave her a bath and the feather that was hanging fell out. None of the broken feathers look like blood feathers.

Here are some pictures I took (sorry about the quality it was during her bath and she was moving about a lot…)

is this normal? is it just part of the moult? She’s being her usual self behaviour wise and can still fly (she just prefers not to)

The broken feathers isn't part of molting. Could she have banged them on something?

hmm no she didn’t bang them on anything but a few days ago her wing did get stuck in something for a few seconds before I quickly helped it out, she didn’t get hurt or anything though she’s flapping her wings right now and it all seems normal except for those few broken feathers…
