This time it was the worst I've ever dealt with and I've had birds my whole life. He had FIVE broken blood feather-I don't understand why this keeps happening with him. It's never happen to Baby and barely happens with the budgies. Half an hour ago he had a night fright with the cage only half covered and the lights on. I don't get it. He freaked out and when I went to look there were blood drops everywhere. I am so glad I asked my dad for a set of pliers. I'm looking at five feathers, broken in close to his wing. Poor thing was so good -I had my finger right by his beak and he didn't bite me once. I'm still watching him now as I want to make sure the bleeding stopped. From what I saw I pulled all the problem ones. I have flour and blood all over me and the kitchen counter but I don't care. I just want him to be ok. I feel so bad. He's in his cage preening now-if I see anymore fresh blood it's straight to the emergency vet. I think he's ok but I gotta watch him for a while to make sure.
