Pin feathers


My Sun Conure just recently got pin feathers for the first time. I know because he bit me when I touched on, haha! Anyways, I’m scared to touch him again but now I don’t know how to spend time with him. Should I just talk to him, or watch TV with him? Please help.


Answer:

Hi Sal,

Fortunately molting does not take long. You can still handle him but avoid touching the new feathers. He should be back to his regular self in a couple weeks or so.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
