My cockatiel is molting and this just fell on the floor. I was so confused was this is and why is it so long. The breeder clipped all the birds wings before giving them away, but other than that I never will clip my birds wings. Please help me I’m a new bird owner and no idea what this is. 24FFD1AE-42CC-4720-A552-FB0416B33859.jpeg EAAF86D6-F312-45B4-A549-A9E29900894A.jpeg

Are you asking why the feather shaft is so long? Looks normal to me?

It's one of the flight feathers that was clipped and also looks normal to me.

The proportions may look odd because the majority of the feather is missing.

I was also going to suggest that the proportions look off because of the clipped feather :)
