Thanks, that eases my mind. Yes, the feathers are the soft fluffy kind and he has had the pin feathers on his head for a week or so now.

I guess saying I chase him down was a poor choice of words. I only have to chase him rarely, when he is being super stubborn about going home and I am on a clock to leave the house. (Rare, but has happened twice now.) He usually goes home when I give a certain whistle and always offer treats when he listens. He has a favorite spot to perch outside the cage though, and some days he just looks at me like "nope, not happening!" when I whistle. I usually have to guide him back then to his cage.
