even more feathers

My Iddy bird has two brand new baby blood feathers.

This would explain why she’s being a butt about having that wing handled. I put on my glasses and lit the living room and dampened her wing with a mist of water and checked it over with her on her back and then her on her tummy. On her back, I found nothing. On her tummy I could see two new pins right next to each other in a different layer of the feathers. The actual feather was barely poking out of the pins and those pins were rich with blood inside.

Go Idris.

She got the broken one out herself.

I don’t use exact terms but here is a great article on feathers and scroll down to Feather Growth
