My bird has been itchy for a while i thought he was picking his feather cause hes doing it rough but he was doing it once on my belly and saw a bit of white thingies fall. since i added veggies to his diet his droppings looked healthy. He is around the 8-10 weeks young.

Hey Ali,

Those white things are flaky? Sounds like karatin sheath that has been preened off the feathers. Perfectly normal. When the feathers first grow in, it is insane for the karetin flakes all over the place, so messy. It is not moulting, just the first feathers growing in. I will hunt for a pic for you to compare...

Is this what you are seeing? If not, maybe a picture can help.

He was not intended but he is meant to be here i love him! Ill update it once he takes a humid bath in a few. Thats when most falls of and he gets itchy the most.
