I'm taking Ziggy to see a vet today since his right wing is hurting him for some reason. His wings are full of pin feathers which I know are painful but everytime he preens there he lifts it up all funny like it hurts and he screams everytime he touches it or he moves it. I just want to know that he's ok with his clumpsy self...We're going in at 3pm.

Nevermind...I just called and cnc. He was doing flappies on top of the cage with no problem 5 mins ago...I think I'm just paranoid today.

He's probably being a poor helpless male like Bailee. If Bails gets a feather out of place he sits there crying about it rather than putting it back where it belongs. :rolleyes:

I don't know what his problem was- he kept letting out a scream everytime he touched it..he's weird. He seems just fine now. PHEWW!

Trust Ziggy to pull on a little act, eh? :rolleyes: But I'm glad his wings feeling better now. ;)

I think Bea was right and it was all his pins- he was holding his wing out which is what had me worried- he's fine- probably exagerated like the typical male.

Ok- I just looked at him and well he was bleeding - from what I can see he had about three blood feathers- I coated the area in flour and put him in the cage to keep him relaxed and still...he must have hit them again something and that's why it was bothering him.:( He had a really bad clip job and he's molting which is not helping-I'm acctually afraid to try and pull the feathers since they are cut really close to his skin:( I'm gona let him relax a bit and check him again in a little while. I feel so bad for him. Ever since I got him he's been so injured. He got beat up at the petstore and had cuts and bruises all over, plucked feathers, no tail, the skin on the side of his mouth was ripped, now the clip job is giving him problems...after all that he's still super sweet.

Thanks. He's much better-playing and everything...he's a little too active for his own good.
