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.


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,
