Hi there and
to the forums!
You have nothing to worry about
Your budgie is starting to moult, which means he is losing feathers to make room for new ones to grow. This is a natural and normal part of a bird's life
The reason the feathers seem cut off at the tips is because his flight feathers have been clipped to prevent him from flying; as he grows new flight feathers in over time, he will regain the ability to fly
Here's a link with more information about moulting!
Also, be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!
We look forward to seeing you around the forums, and meeting Blue, too
