Hi everyone,
Thank you for ur endless help in my previous questions, I really appreciate it !
I have a Quaker his name is Filfil (Green pepper in arabic hahaha), I’ve owned him since he’s 29 days old and now he’s almost 9 months. Today I’ve took him outside to be exposed to sun and shower him and I’ve noticed some blackish color of his wings’ feather. I’m not sure why ? Is it because of his diet ? (I give him mixed seeds with peanuts that I usually buy from pet stores), or could it be due to low amount of sun exposure ? Since I’m from Saudi Arabia and the sun here can burn everything and it reaches up to 48c in summer.
If anyone can help me, Filfil and I will be sooo happy.
thank you ❤

It could be diet related, but it looks like bronzing.
