    Damaged wing

    Hi everyone,

    Iíve got a pair of chicks which I reared they are now 2 years old and one of them has in the last week got a damaged wing, they seem perfectly happy and healthy otherwise but the wing doesnít look great, itís almost like itís been clipped but we donít clip the wings as we let them out to fly around the house.

    Any advice on care for this would be great. Weight when I checked last week was 94g

    Re: Damaged wing

    It is possible the cockatiel is molting. Often times they do lose wing feathers as well. Further, it could be due to dry skin. Try spritzing your birds with some tepid warm water, or give them a bath in your shower, or with a good size dish or pan.

    Have you seen the bird fly into doors or windows, or blinds. That also can cause broken wing feathers. It is best to have no mirrors on walls, as well. They tend to treat mirrors as real birds.
