Hi Guys,

 

This is "Orphie", I posted about him ages ago and my sister has had him for quite a while...

 

I have always clipped his wings, but in the last few weeks on and off he has been picking at his left wing and making it slightly bleed.. I pulled out 2 feather pins a week or so ago and all seemed okay, now today he is really biting and pulling on the feathers and making the wing bleed.

 

What can I do? He is in excellent health apart from this left wing....

Is he going through a molt? Was he flying around and injured that wing?

HI Elly,

 

He is getting to the end of his moult.....I don't think he has hurt it by crash landing as he has never really tried to fly, I think it's from him biting at it, he is constantly pulling and picking at it.......

Further inspection today...those big white feather pins seem to be sticking in his side causing irritaion........ What can I do about that?
