Hi I have a 1yr old male Alexandrine. I bought him from a breeder November last year who clipped his right wing only and cut it way too short. The vet informed me that he should grow new feathers back after his first molt but these new feathers may be more susceptible to breakages. Over the past couple of months or so he has been molting and grew back two of the longest wing feathers on the damaged side which is fantastic. He has had these new feathers for about a month or so now until last night he was sitting on my shoulder as he always does and I bent down to get the milk out of the fridge and he flew into the fridge door. I noticed the there was a small amount of blood on the inside of the fridge door and a tiny speck on his wing. I kept a very close eye on him to make sure he wasn't bleeding to death. No more blood came out. I think he just cracked those blood feathers. Then this morning I noticed he had pulled the two feathers out but not completely it's like he's knawed them off and the ends ate still in his wing. I have been unable to find any info on the risks of leaving the ends in other than the possibility that the new feathers to replace them will take much longer to grow in their place. Do I need to get the vet to pull the ends of the feathers out or will they either fall out as the new feathers grow in or will he pull them out eventually himself? What other risks are associated with the ends being left in?
