This evening, while trying to restrain Jamie from heading for the opening front door, he got out of my hand. I held on, and accidentally pulled out a whole lot of tailfeathers, maybe seven or eight large ones, plus some smaller ones. It seemed upsetting for him, and he sat on my husband's shoulder during dinner, washing himself endlessly. Later, in his cage, he had some sort of night fright, either that or he fell from his perch.
Is this a dangerous thing to happen, the feather thing? I love him very much and can't stop worrying about him, since I'm always ultra gentle and careful with him. Have I hurt him?
