He is pied right? Then it is normal to have plain white or yellow tail feathers and in a bird with other mutations it is an identifying marker that a bird is pied

Tail feathers can change as they molt in new ones. Since pieds are so strange as it is, it's not an issue if he grows pied tail feathers even though he didn't have them before.
